Discussion article for the meetup : LW Meetup in Lyon

WHEN: 03 July 2013 06:00:00PM (+0200)

WHERE: 4 rue de la Charité, 69002 Lyon

It is time for a first LW Meetup in Lyon!

Some of the topics we could talk about are: effective altruism, munchkinism and other sorts of life hacking, belief updates or any other topic that you would like to discuss.

We will meet at Café de la Cloche, a "café-philo".

Please feel free to bring along non LW readers and non Anglophones who might be interested in such conversations.

I look forward to meeting you!

If you are interested in maximizing the chances of finding people for a meetup, you should remove the trivial inconvenience of requiring people to voice their interest. Just set the time and place unconditionally and see if people show up, collect their contact info, and repeat (even if nobody shows up the first time). If you use something like a cafe as a venue (which is OK if you expect at most a few people, just make sure there are empty seats and no loud music), all you personally have to do is sit there for an hour (you can spend the time reading something if nobody else shows up).

Thanks. A few people are already emailing me so I will set up a time and place with them and then update the meetup infos here. LW is not popular in non-english speaking countries.

I'm in Saint-Etienne. I can make it to Lyon, but as I'm completely broke, if there are few people and nobody particularly minds taking the train, I'd rather have the meetup in Saint-Etienne.

We are for the moment five people interested in Lyon. The best would probably be for you to send me an email if you have the occasion to pass by Lyon and I can put you in contact with the rest of us. Otherwise going to St Etienne is complicated for me as well. I will set up a date and time in 3-4 days for a first meetup.
