I'll be in the Bay Area from the 17-30 June for training as a TripleByte Interviewer. My interests include:
- Effective altruism - particularly movement building
- Agent foundations - particularly updateless decision theory and anthropics
- Infinite ethics
- More broadly, the boundary of philosophy of maths, but also philosophy in general
PM me if you want to meet up or if you have any recommendations.
Update: I'll be training during weekdays, so I'll only be free during evenings and weekends

I also will be visiting SF for these dates for EA global, and I am interesting to discuss things like fighting aging as EA cause, as well as more fringe ideas like Boltzmann brains, simulation's termination risks and sending messages to the future AI.

Hi Avturchin, I think it'll be easier to discuss off-site. Please PM me either your email address or Facebook and we can see if we can sort something out. I don't know anything about aging, but the other topics you've mentioned sound interesting. Also what dates will you be in San Fransisco?
