Discussion article for the meetup : Israel (Tel Aviv) Meetup: Fun and Games with Cognitive Biases

WHEN: 01 August 2013 08:00:00PM (+0300)

WHERE: Adventures Garden (Gan Harpatkaot), Tel Aviv, Israel

This meetup is going to be about Cognitive Biases, a whole bunch of socializing, and a rump session.

We will be meeting next to the Adventure Park in Park Hayarkon in Tel Aviv at 8pm.

Its next to "Theatre in the park".

The main talk will be:

Fun and Games with Cognitive Biases / Gal Hochberg Exploring and brainstorming cognitive biases, how to recognize them, how to avoid them and how to use them to win. Based on an NYC LW meetup session.

A rump session is (to those unfamiliar with the concept): Each participant will give a 4-minute talk (+3 minute encore if we applaud hard enough). Giving a talk isn't mandatory, but it's highly recommended. Not confident that what you have to say is relevant to our interests? Unsure about your public speaking skills? Doesn't matter - in the rump session, anything goes.

The schedule:

| Start | End | What |

|---------+-------+--------------------------------------|

| 20:00 | 20:15 | Assembly |

| 20:15 | 21:00 | Main Talk |

| 21:00 | 22:00 | Dinner & Discussion |

| 22:00 | 23:00 | Rump Session (minitalks) |

| 23:00 | ??:?? | End of official programming |

See you all there!

The schedule got messed up in formatting. Here is a fixed version:

20:00 - 20:15: Assembly

20:15 - 21:00: Main Talk

21:00 - 22:00: Dinner and Discussion

22:00 - 23:00: Rump session

Great! Waiting to see everyone!

BTW, anyone have any ideas for an interesting Rump Session that I could give? (Relevant domains: Business/Programming/Life Hacking?).

The park is pretty big, so make sure to look at the linked map. The points to the precise location we intend to hold the meetup at. It even has coordinates and a picture of what the location looks like.

To make us even easier to spot, I'll wave my Staff of Conspicuousness.
