Discussion article for the meetup : LessWrong Hamburg

WHEN: 17 July 2015 06:30:00PM (+0200)

WHERE: Hamburg, Steindamm 80

After a long hiatus the LW Hamburg Meetup restarts in full force. The energy of the LW Berlin Community Event has brought some of us together and motivated us to try something lager this time. And we hope to attract old and new people who want to help improve each other lives with talk, games and fun.

We have a fine location neer Hamburg main station. Reachable via U1 Lohmühlenstraße. You have to arrive between 6 and 7 PM (or else contact me) to be let in (the janitor will be informed).
