This Sunday at 1pm (PDT), we're running another session of "lightning talks" by curated LessWrong authors (see here for previous weeks' transcripts).

  • Each talk will be 3-5 minutes followed by discussion. Afterwards, we'll have a hangout in breakout rooms. The talks will be short and focus on presenting one core idea well, rather than rushing through a lot of content.
  • We want to give top LessWrong writers an interesting space to discuss their ideas, and have more fruitful collaboration between users. Think of it like a cross between an academic colloquium and some friends chatting by a whiteboard.

If you're a curated author and interested in giving a 5-min talk at a future event, which will then be transcribed and edited, sign up here.

At the last minute I decided it turns out I don't actually know what Industrial Compatible Empathy means (at least, not coherently enough to give a talk), and I'm gonna talk about Intentional Privacy Practices instead. 

You'll have to file a request with the LessWrong Customer Service Team, with office hours 9am to 5pm Pacific time, Monday through Thursday, and a lunch break at 12-1pm. 

Processing times for requests like this are usually around 4-5 days. 

Thank you for your patience. 

See you in an hour :)

You have contradictory information about when the meeting is. I assume 19th but why confuse people and cast doubt? By the law of cockroaches if there is one error there are probably more, so please check all the details.

Thanks, fixed.
