There will be a LessWrong meetup for Southern California on Sunday April 10th from 2:00PM to 8:00PM and we will probably linger later. Feel free to come for all or part of the time.  The location is being kindly provided by the Harvey Mudd A.I. & Future Technology Club in the Platt Campus Center of Harvey Mudd College.

For travel planning purposes, the meetup is happening about 10 blocks north of the Claremont Metrolink Station, which connects to the hub at LA Union Station.  Train schedules can be searched here.  Also there should be car pooling opportunities in the comments.

As more meetups have happened attendance has been increasing.  If you want to make sure to see future announcements so you don't miss a meetup, you can sign up for the mailing list.

See you there!

The general plan for this month's meetup is to try to get more people unfamiliar with LW and x-rationality (particularly other HMC students) to come. I'm not sure to what extent this will be successful, but if it is, it would be nice to have some introductory talks about how rationality can have good practical benefits and help you achieve your goals.

I'd encourage people who are planning on coming to have some examples from their own lives of how rationality has been particularly useful.

Ah, just missed this announcement. I'll definitely make it to the next one though, now that I've signed up for the list (especially if they continue to be at HMC, my alma mater).

Question: Is "joining the googlegroup" synonymous with "signing up for the mailing list"?

I'm coming from San Diego. Anyone who wants to carpool should send me a PM to trade contact info :-)

Sorry I can't make it this time - I've got travel plans this weekend. Hope to see everyone next time.
