LessWrong Event TranscriptsEvents (Community)Community

This Sunday at 12pm (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.



When? Sunday August 2, 12pm (PDT)

Where? Zoom

Mazes and Duality was last time, we're doing something different this time.

Gah, thanks, I'm too sloppy with these announcements. Will improve!
