Short post here.

 

Lesswrong Sydney runs a rationality dojo once a month.  We usually cover 1-2 topics for an hour or less each.  Our regular attendance is 10-20 people.

 

This month's topics were:

  1. Captain awkward advice
  2. Goal factoring (CFAR)
  3. Understanding zen koans
I only recorded the section on zen koans.  Feedback welcome.

Looked at a few scenarios and tried to come up with advice then compared our collective to the captains advice.
