Discussion article for the meetup : Portland Meetup?

WHEN: 14 January 2012 12:00:00PM (-0800)

WHERE: 1005 West Burnside, Portland, OR 97209

(Edited after looking over some other meetup posts.) This is a tentative attempt at a meetup in Portland. I think Powell's books is a decent place for a meeting place, and from there if people want to migrate to someplace to sit down and eat, etc., that works well too. It has the added advantage that if it turns out that nobody shows up, hey, I am in Powell's. It's a win anyways. I am still working out the details of all this. It's a bit subject to change.

Added entry for Portland to the wiki.

Created a Google Group LessWrong Portland.

Excellent! I am excited for this. How will we make sure we see each other? Any suggestions are welcome.

How about we meet by the board games in the science fiction section? That's in the gold room. If I remember right it's near the asterisk on this map: http://www.powells.com/pdf/burnside_map_2011.pdf

I am 6'3", I will wear a black T-shirt with a realistic-looking lightning bolt on the front, and I will have a backpack with a helmet hanging from it.

That is a good place to meet. With no other suggestions, this should be the plan.

I'll try to be there.

Edit: I've cleared my conflict and now plan to make it.

I and another lesswrong fan will be moving to Portland in the next four months (90% probability) and would be very interested in meetups when we're in the area. Thanks for setting it up.

First Portland meetup, and I'm out of town for the weekend. Hope it becomes a recurring event.
