TL;DR : book a ticket now:

We're doing it all again!

Following the success of last year's Mega-meetup, we're running another one - this time bigger and better, and in the snow!

Come and meet your fellow rationalists from all around Australia, learn rationality skills and have amazing late-night conversations on a wide range of cool topics. Share your knowledge, throw snowballs and basically have a blast.

This Less Wrong Mega Meetup #2 will be held on the weekend of the 17th-19th of July in Araluen Lodge In Jindabyne.:

We managed to score this awesome venue for cheaper than our last one - and in the middle of snow-season!

So tickets are cheaper this year than last year at only $220 for the weekend.

So book a ticket now:

and then fill out the registration form to help us figure out the best possible schedule for you.

Registration form includes the program information, We are also keen for feedback on all things!

We only have about 40 tickets and I am confident they will all be sold, so get out your diary, check the dates, write us in; then book your ticket!

Hope to see you there.

I can't attend because I can't in good conscience pay all that money for something that won't be significantly better for my rationality unless it was at a cheaper venue (i.e. a normal city venue instead of a ski lodge...).

Anyway, I have a request for personal advice for the Australian lesswrongers:

"How do I reconcile my deontological preference for libertarianism (respect for free will and voluntary decisions) with consequentialistic policies (the Green's party seems to have a more ethical, pro-social policy agenda than the Liberal Party of Australia, but I'm a member of the Liberal party). I'm also concerned that switching parties, if indeed that is the right way to go, will be bad for my potential political candidacy and chance of getting appointed to some position of power by a powerbroker associated with the party."

Just check out their federal policies, state policies, and how professional their politicians area, haha.

Note: this is the same meetup/camp as: We just noticed that there were two competing names for it... so now we have both, just in case.
