Discussion article for the meetup : First(New?) Waterloo Meetup

WHEN: 24 November 2011 08:00:00PM (-0500)

WHERE: Meetpoint, 150 University Ave W, Waterloo, Ontario

LWers from Waterloo - of whom I know there are a few - assemble!

It looks like there have been a few meetups in the past, but nobody has been responding to my PM's, so I thought I'd take matters into my own hands. Rationality is too important to wait around for.

As a topic, I was thinking "what does LW mean to you?", but in my experience the conversation usually takes its own wings.

Hope to see everyone there!

Awesome! There are now meetups in Ottawa, Toronto, and Waterloo; an Ontario Mega Meetup draws nigh!

I've just added another Ontario meetup: anyone in Oakville?

I wish you had started it this summer. I was making a 2h commute to Toronto to attend theirs when I was right on the Oakville/Sauga border.

Does that mean I'll see you here this Friday?

Unfortunately no. I live in Waterloo, just spent the summer in Mississauga. I might make a guest appearance at some point during the year though!

I will attend. I looked for interest in a Waterloo meetup before, but I did not get around to organizing one. I think this is a new meetup, unless you count the time Eliezer came here. (I don't know anyone who attended that, by the way.)

I aim to be there, but I have been ill and my health comes first. I hope to not be the only female attending.

As of right now, I think you might be, katryn, but that's okay! Bring a friend (even if she has no exposure to LW, just someone who will give this whole rationality thing a chance) and poof, just like magic there are two females attending.

I'll see about bringing my girlfriend too, because all of the meet-up literature says GENDER RATIO MATTERS. It's very particular on that point.

Get better soon!

Awesome! I'll be back in Waterloo in January and I hope these continue till then. I had plans to start them myself.

I just made the reservation - it's under Sandy, but I'll have a sign too, so don't worry too much about finding us. We're expecting a turn out of about 10 people :)

I have wished for a nearby LW group for a while and will be attending U of Waterloo in January. I will nearly certainly be there.
