In short, I'm wondering what place/group/organisation/activity could do for rationality in Europe what Berkeley does for rationality in the US?
Soon, we'll have LWCW in Berlin, which I hope will be an occasion to do some networking among people who think seriously about developing rationality communities. But in the meantime, let's do some brainstorming.
Important note: in comments to this post, please use only consequentialist language. For example, say "If we decided for the base to be on Malta, then X would happen" instead of "I think it should be in Malta, because..."
- What would happen if the rationality base was located in [insert specific city/country]?
- What could such a place offer to you now, that would make you consider a temporary/permanent move?
- What would happen if the European rationality community efforts were centered around some particular research topic (e.g. AI)?
- Is there something you can think of that would speed up community-building in Europe?
Of course, share anything else that you think is relevant to the topic.
Also, see you all in Berlin :)
