When: Saturday, April 30th, 2PM.

Where: Au Pt'it Chat, a little Café near Châtelet, which is here. I'll be there with a LessWrong sign.

Yvain, cousin_it and Morendil should be there ... and you are welcome too!

This is a repost, the meetup was originally planned the 16th, but that post wasn't promoted and the date changed in the meantime.

Lurkers and newbies are very welcome!

The meetup was a success, attendance more than tripled since last Paris meetup !

From left to right: Morendil, Yvain, cousin_it, Alexandros, Emile, bogdanb; the picture was taken by MixedNuts.

It was a pretty international meetup too, since we had an American from Ireland, a Greek from England, a Russian from Switzerland, and a Romanian from France. Discussion topics included the weight of squirrels, the longevity of ducks, the morality of killing 3^^^3 characters in "The Sims" and the geopolitics of Cheeseburgers.

We walked around the Jardin des Plantes and the Jardin du Luxembourg, and visited Pascal's grave.

Chiming in to say thanks to everyone, and on top of that some extra thanks to Alexandros who gave me a place to stay in Paris for free!
