Discussion article for the meetup : First Philadelphia Meetup of 2012
Hello Philadelphian Less-Wrongers!
A couple of people have expressed interest in restarting regular Philadelphia-area Less Wrong meetups, so I thought it would be fun to hold one once the December holiday season has wound to a close.
Tentative date is Sunday, January 8th at 2 P.M.; if you're interested in coming, please fill out the Doodle poll at http://www.doodle.com/s2afikbngrz3d42z to give me an idea of how your schedule looks for the week (may be handy in determining if a better time will work after all).
Location is also flexible; the meetup is currently scheduled at the Chestnut Hill Coffee Company for its pleasant atmosphere, proximity to free Chestnut Hill parking, and - as the name might suggest - excellent coffee, but other ideas are also quite welcome.
Formal agenda will include general introductions, picking a time and place for regular meetups, and deciding what content we want to pursue at them: I was thinking that a combination of discussions of rational methods, project planning, and self-improvement a la Overcoming Bias NYC might be a good place to start, but we can obviously discuss this more in person.
Have a very Happy New Year, and I look forward to meeting all of you soon!
