Aww, I would love to come, but can't quite afford plane tickets on short notice. Do you think the next one could be planned more than 3 months in advance, so we could set out alerts for cheap tickets? And here's positive feedback for doing this at all, because it's a big undertaking, and fantastic for our community world-wide! Hurray!
Thanks for adding that comment.
Thank you for pointing this out. I will adjust the title; it was just a mistake that I omitted the Atlanta part. We are still deciding on a location as our usual host is out of town. My apologies for the confusion!
Raiden, let's talk on IM and see if we can figure out a way to get you there. I'm not sure we have any members coming from AL, but there may be bus options we can explore. IM me on gchat at email@example.com. -Katie
Ok guys, the first step is exactly what Rudi posted. Go here: http://rudihoffman.com/form_request.html and fill out the form. :)
Definitely! I will write up a summary and what I learned for the LW-organizers mailing group, if nothing else.
Could I get a quick list of those top dozen improvements, so I can estimate the hourly rate for a $5k pay, and then forward that on to my extremely talented programmer fiance (who is also a LWer)?
Hi guys! For those in our meetup group but not on facebook, let me draw your attention to some of the Lesswrong articles specifically mentioned last night:
http://lesswrong.com/lw/bq0/be_happier/ This one has a high fact to word count ratio, so lots of bang for you buck.
http://lesswrong.com/lw/3nn/scientific_selfhelp_the_state_of_our_knowledge This one may send you into hyperlink overload. Ooof!
Enjoy, and be happy!
If this opportunity ever comes around again, I want to do this! Female-mathy-transhumanist-educator sums up a lot of me. I organize the still-fledgling Atlanta LessWrong meetups, and I want to bring them back some memes from a highly concentrated rationalist community!
Actually, the Atlanta Lesswrong Meetup is Friday, April 19th at 7PM (NOT the 22nd April date above). Totally my mistake, and I hope everyone can still make it!
