Discussion article for the meetup : Atlanta LessWrong: August Meetup

WHEN: 04 August 2013 06:00:00PM (-0400)

WHERE: 2388 Lawrenceville Hwy. Apt L. Decatur, GA 30033

For the first of our two planned August meetups, we will be continuing our work on group self-improvement and Bayesian reasoning, as well as having super fun social times with games and banter!


  • Introductions and Welcome to New Members!

  • Meta-Meetup Stuff: Creating a regularly scheduled, twice monthly, meeting time. Mini-presentations by members. Currently we have a series going on epistemology.

  • Self-improvement brainstorming: Each meetup, we will invite one member to volunteer for our "self-improvement group hacking/brainstorming." The volunteer will discuss an issue with their lives, be it physical, emotional, intellectual, or philosophical, and invite feedback and brainstorming from other members to improve their lives.

  • Meetup Educational Experiences! We've done meditation, and we've been working on a series of Bayesian Reasoning Preliminaries on Probability and Confidence Intervals. We will continue with conditional probability and move towards rockin' us some Bayes' Theorem. Games, Social Time, Free Discussion

Please contact me if you have allergies to cats, as our meeting space has two. As always, vegan, gluten-free snacks will be provided. Feel free to bring additional snacks and drink!
