Oxford (UK) Rationality & AI Risks Discussion Group

I'm currently in Cambridge, so I'd like to try attending this on Saturday if things work out

Rationality Case Study - Ad-36

This is similar to the notion of polymath projects (apparently quite successful): http://polymathprojects.org/general-polymath-rules/

Self-Improvement or Shiny Distraction: Why Less Wrong is anti-Instrumental Rationality

I had a similar thought on the distinction between "shiny/fun" versus "hard", but I still support the basic premise of the article. As it stands, I find LW valuable in a dual role... i.e. both for developing the right attitude towards self help and also as a "fun/shiny" thing. At the same time, I suppose there is a lot of scope for improvement with its role pertaining to the self help goals.
