Discussion article for the meetup : West LA Meetup 01-25-2012
When: 7:00pm - 9:00pm Wednesday, January 25th.
Parking is free for 3 hours.
Discussion Topic: This week is about checklists. Our tentative goal for the evening is to make a rationality checklist to consider before making big decisions. If you have a chance, try to think of some good examples of bad decisions, and good decisions made under uncertainty. You may find some inspiration browsing Wikipedia's list of cognitive biases. Also see the original source of inspiration for this meeting, Charlie Munger's checklists.
This is also a good time to browse recent posts, as they also make for good discussion!
Whether you're a regular reader or totally new, here for the theoretical musings or the practical things, come by and say hello! The conversation is largely unstructured and casual, and the people are awesome. If we have a large group, we may also play a game!
I will bring a whiteboard with Bayes' Theorem written on it.
