Discussion article for the meetup : First LW Meetup in Warsaw

WHEN: 30 March 2014 03:00:00PM (+0100)

WHERE: Cafe Kulturalna, Plac Defilad 1, 00-901 Warszawa

As far as I can tell, there never has been a Lesswrong meetup in Warsaw, although Warsaw has almost 2 million inhabitants.

I'm currently visiting my girlfriend in Warsaw and we would like to meet folks who are also interested in Lesswrong and related topics.

Regarding the content and structure of the meetup: I would suggest that at first everyone proposes some discussion topics he or she is interested in (e.g. epistemic rationality, effective altruism, far future/FAI, practical life tips, etc.) and then we choose the most popular ones. Simple socializing and getting to know each other is of course also great!

Please leave a comment if you're thinking about attending or are interested in a LW meetup in Warsaw, even if you can't attend this one.

And remember, (almost) everyone is welcome, especially newbies!

(In case you can't find the place or something, here's our number: 0048 693 603 770)

ETA: The meetup will take place at 15:00 PM, local time.

On a general level me and tkadlubo are interested, but not this time. AFAWK there are just over a dozen Polish LWers, scattered around the country and that makes any meetup difficult.

We are going to the Berlin Meetup in 3 weeks, Maybe see you there?

I am interested, but not sure if I will be available on that date (40%?). Do you want to create a FB event? From my experience as an organizer of various stuff it works for seeing who is interested; of course it will attract more newbies and casual readers (I am in this category: up to date, my most serious interaction with LW is this post: http://stats.stackexchange.com/questions/28067/entropy-based-refutation-of-shalizis-bayesian-backward-arrow-of-time-paradox/28634#28634).

Don't know how useful that is, but I created a FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/360486800773506/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming&source=1

This link does not work for me (it redirects to my event list). I am not sure if it is because of privacy settings or anything else? In any case: what is its full name as it appears on FB?

I changed the privacy settings. Link should work now.

In case anyone was going to organize another meeting, I'd love to participate. To bad I missed this one.
