Discussion article for the meetup : Salt Lake City Meetup #2

WHEN: 04 February 2012 03:00:00PM (-0700)

WHERE: 248 E 100 S, Salt Lake City, UT 8411, USA

The 2nd meetup will be at Nostalgia Cafe, 248 E 100 S, this Saturday at 3:00 pm. Saturdays at 3 was the preferred choice by a large margin.

By the way, a tentative 3rd meetup would probably be in a more central location, possibly Taylorsville Library, though I'm just hazarding a guess since I don't know where everyone present last time and otherwise interested lives.

The 2nd Meetup's agenda may--or may not--change. I realize that a presentation on probability theory may not be possible at even a very large table in a cafe. If that doesn't work until next time, I suggest one thing to do is brainstorm ideas (and next actions) for ksvanhorn and DanNuffer's for-profit rationality training idea. Another is to gauge interest in and discuss instrumental rationality (I have a couple of ideas), and in general have a few more one-on-one conversations.

Oh, and at least one additional thing to do at the next meetup - introduce some kind of group site to avoid announcements like Meetup #2 - Logistics

Google Group?

EDIT: http://groups.google.com/group/lesswrongslc

I have a heuristic that if something takes less than a minute to do, one should just do it then instead of adding it to an ever-burgeoning to-do list. It's an adopted policy from "Getting Things Done".

I'm not proposing this as a permanent solution or anything, but I don't see anyone discussing the problem.


Unless that was what was talked about after I left. Probably should have sent my email asking what happened BEFORE I set the group up... Woops.

Haha, that's awesome! I'm reading Getting Things Done right now, interestingly enough...

The only potential problem I see is if I would be the one adding most of the things to the Group but you're the one with administrative privileges or something. Email me so we can figure that out.
