Discussion article for the meetup : San Francisco Meetup: Reciprocity Circle
We’re trying a new-ish format this week - a variant on our usual topic of Group Debugging.
This time we’ll go around and have each person list 1-3 things they wish someone could help them with, and then have others (hopefully) volunteer to help them. Once we’ve gone around the circle, we break to discuss with the people we are helping or being helped by.
For help getting into the building, please call (or text, with a likely-somewhat-slower response rate): 301-458-0764.
We meet and start hanging out at 6:15, but don’t officially start doing the meetup topic until 6:45-7 to accommodate stragglers. Usually there is a food order that goes out before we start the meetup topic.
About these meetups:
The mission of the SF LessWrong meetup is to provide a fun, low-key social space with some structured interaction, where new and non-new community members can mingle and have interesting conversations. Everyone is welcome.
We explicitly encourage people to split off from the main conversation or diverge from the topic if that would be more fun for them (moving side conversations into a separate part of the space if appropriate). Meetup topics are here as a tool to facilitate fun interaction, and we certainly don’t want them to inhibit it.
