Joe Schneider will give a talk on Optimizing Empathy Levels:

-Why LWers (and others) undervalue it.

-Why non-LWers (and others) overvalue it.

-How you can use it properly to get ahead.

Cambridge/Boston-area Less Wrong meetups start at 2pm, and have an alternating location:

  • 2nd and 4th Sunday meetups are in MIT's building 66 at 25 Ames St, room 156. Room number subject to change based on availability; signs will be posted with the actual room number.

  • Meetups on other weeks are at Citadel in Porter Sq, at 98 Elm St, apt 1, Somerville.

Our default schedule is as follows:

—Phase 1: Arrival, greetings, unstructured conversation.

—Phase 2: The headline event. This starts promptly at 2:30pm, and lasts 30-60 minutes.

—Phase 3: Further discussion. We'll explore the ideas raised in phase 2, often in smaller groups.

—Phase 4: Dinner.
