Discussion article for the meetup : Seattle Rationality Reading Group

WHEN: 29 February 2016 06:30:00PM (-0800)

WHERE: Paul G. Allen Center, 185 Stevens Way, Seattle, Washington

Come meet other Seattle-area aspiring rationalists to discuss the week's reading, learn rationality techniques, and have a good time. This is a weekly meetup, meeting on the 5th floor of the Paul Allen Center (UW computer science building), often in room 503. Discussion will start at 6:45.

This week's Facebook event is https://www.facebook.com/events/1706167056307601/. To see future events, consider joining the Seattle Rationality group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/seattlerationality/.

While doing the reading beforehand is recommended, it is not required. We are currently working on the Human's Guide To Words sequence (part of The Machine in the Ghost), with added content from SlateStarCodex. Previous reading included the Map and Territory & How to Actually Change Your Mind sequences.
