If y'all want to have additional meetups on other days please let me know, I'm happy to schedule and facilitate more meetups including more formal ones (e.g. debates a la adversarial collaborations, meetups with multiple or longer talks given during them, rigorous discussions on a specific topic, etc.)

Send me stuff! I want to know what topics y'all are interested in, articles, books, etc. that y'all recommend, other resources y'all recommend, proposals y'all have for talks, discussions, adversarial collaborations (debates), etc. etc. etc.
This will help me quite a bit when organizing our meetups and will also mean something that you're interested in will get some coverage or discussion during a meetup. Why do you think I've started adding human life extension as a topic? Because that's what I'm interested in! It is also a broadly interesting topic for most LessWrong, SSC, EA, etc. affiliated individuals, so that helps too. What are you interested in, dear reader?
I hope y'all are safe and doing well! Let me know how you've been :)
