[Tenerife/Canary Islands] Meetup January and February

Thanks for the initiative, appreciate it! :) 

My partner and I will be in Tenerife from 7 - 17 January. We already have quite a few plans for our time there and I don't want to overcommit, so I only put myself on "maybe", but if it's not too far away I'd try to come :) 
We got an Airbnb in Santa Cruz (north east) and will probably spend most of our time in that area. Where will you be?

I also don't check LW often, so best email or Facebook message me on: 

Some more info about me: I work full-time in Effective Altruism (EA) movement building, so I spend most of my time organising events for the community and helping people figure out how to do the most good with their donations and careers. If not working, you'll find me doing any kind of outdoor sports, dancing, doing acrobatics or reading. More on 

Retrospective on Teaching Rationality Workshops

Thanks for writing this up! 

This seems really useful for aspiring rationality organisers, will forward it to those I meet. 

European Master's Programs in Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and related fields

Thanks a lot for compiling this! This is useful - I'll forward it to some friends who are looking into ML programs right now. 

I think a lot of EA community members would be interested in this as well, but many of them may not be active on the LW forum. Maybe it's worth reposting this on the EA forum? Just this post with links to the LW posts should be enough - don't think you need to repost everything on the EA forum. In case you think it's useful but can't repost it yourself for some reason I can also do it, just let me know (though I think it's better if you repost it).
