Come to our meet up! Whether you liked first one or missed it we would be very happy to see you. On this one we plan to discuss why we personally learned and want to learn rational methods of thinking, thru this we will refine our picture of Rationality and bond. There also will be a little report on logarithmic probabilities, fair scoring rules and exercise on calibration.

There will be required reading (not exactly required, but if at all possible - please get acquainted - to get everyone on fairly equal groud).
