This Sunday at 12pm (PDT), we're running another session of "lightning talks" by curated LessWrong authors (see here [? · GW] for previous weeks' transcripts).

If you're a curated author and interested in giving a 5-min talk at a future event, which will then be transcribed and edited, sign up here.



When? Sunday August 16, 12pm (PDT)



Comments sorted by top scores.

I wish there had been a FB event for this, since that's one of the main ways I keep track of events. Alternatively, perhaps this page could have had some sort of downloadable calendar file so that I could have easily added it to google calendar.

I like the google calendar idea quite a bit.

LessWrong team just had a retreat last week that took up most of our cognition, and then yesterday at 11:30pm Ben was like "hey Ray, um, should I make a FB event?" and I was like "idk man, it is pretty last minute to make a FB event. Maybe?" and he said "whelp, I guess we get to find out this week how many people will find the event via LessWrong?" and I said "yup, guess so."

For the record I saw this on LW, then didn't take any note of it, assuming there would be a FB event. But I do think it's fine to run this experiment.

"Ran an experiment" is a bit of an optimistic framing of how we went about it. But, yeah.

The event is happening now, here in this Zoom Call.
