LessWrong meetup, London UK, 2010-06-06 16:00

The next London LessWrong meetup will be at 16:00 on Sunday 6 June in the Shakespeare's Head near Holborn station.  I'll put a Less Wrong sign on the table so you can find us; I look like this.  Send me a direct message with your mobile number or email me (paul at ciphergoth dot org), and I'll reciprocate.

We're trying out a different venue this time; this is where we ended up meeting after Humanity+ which means that at least six of us already know where it is.  Looking forward to seeing some of you there!

Update: Sad to say, I may now not make this myself - a domestic emergency has come up. Sorry to let people down! If another volunteer could step forward to put the "Less Wrong" notice on the table and kick things off, that would be a great service - thanks!

Hi, it was good to meet you all. This is me de-lurking. I'm the one who bought the chips. Where did things go ideas-wise after I left then?

Hi, thanks for de-lurking - and thanks for the chips! Not sure I can give a terribly good summary - maybe we should start taking notes next time?

Do you remember which of these it is that's supposed to be really good?

Note: Less Wrong T-shirts are available at zazzle as promised last time... if someone wants to work on a design that looks good on white t-shirts, we can get the cost down to 12 quid.

By the way, quick straw poll: do people have a strong preference for cost minimization on T-shirts, or do people prefer a black T-shirt? Vote on the subcomments below.

Vote up if you prefer black at 19 quid

How much trouble would it be to upload a version of the one with the subtitle, but without the box?

Yeah, that could be done.

Vote up if you prefer the cheaper white t-shirts at 12 quid

I MAY be there, but London is a lot of money away from me.

I expect to be there.

Very sadly, I now can't make it - see update - would you be able to put a "Less Wrong" notice on the table and welcome newcomers? Thanks!

Beware Canadians seeking paperclips.

Excellent, I will be there.

Sounds good. I will most probably be there.

Sure, but it may be a sharpie-on-napkin affair.

That's great - thanks! I may yet make it, but life is throwing chainsaws at me!

Excellent, looking forward to seeing you again!
