Discussion article for the meetup : Tel Aviv Meetup: Assorted LW mini-talks
We're going to have a meetup on Tuesday, June 23 at Google Tel Aviv offices, Electra Tower, 98 Yigal Alon st., Tel Aviv. We will hear and discuss several mini-talks on assorted LessWrong-related topics. Each talk will last 10 to 20 minutes, plus some time for questions and discussion. An approximate list (some details may change): Joshua will talk on the difference between Kurzwellians vs MIRI-ites in their attitudes to technology and likely futures. Liran and Vadim will tell us about their visit to the LessWrong mega-meetup in Europe recently. Vadim will talk about Maximizing Ultra-Long Impact: are there things we can do today that can matter on absurdly long time scales. Anatoly will report on reading some papers related to John Taurek's 1977 challenge to consequentialists: "Should numbers count?". We'll meet at the 29th floor of the building (not the one with Google Campus) at 19:00. If you arrive and can't find your way around, call Anatoly who's hosting us at 054-245-1060. Email at firstname.lastname@example.org also works.
