Discussion article for the meetup : Meetup : London - Paranoid Debating 2nd Feb, plus social 9th Feb

WHEN: 02 February 2014 02:00:00PM (+0000)

WHERE: Shakespeare's Head, Holborn, WC2B 6BG

The next London meetup will be a session of paranoid debating. Trust no one.

The venue will be the usual Shakespeare's head, and the time will be the usual 2pm until we get bored, after which we will probably be talking.

In addition! There will be a purely-social meetup on the 9th, at the same time and place. And the next not-purely-social meetup is likely to be the 16th, but if it's not, there will be a purely-social one then as well. We're doing weekly meetups, but to avoid spamming /r/discussion, we're currently posting only the not-purely-social meetups to LW.

If you have difficulty finding us, you can reach me on 07792009646.

We also have a Google group which you might find worth joining.

Are you sure the not spamming thing is a good idea it means that the nearest meetups section doesn't include London even if there is a meetup?

Agreed. Being an advocate of guess culture I approve of the higher order thinking (thinking that others might think that you're spamming) but in this case I think it's not efficient. Ergo there should be an explicit posting every time there's a meeting imo.

I'm not sure, no. But people have said (explicitly, implicitly and passive-aggressively) that they find the number of meetup posts annoying, and I think at one point London was a plurality of those.

If I'm sufficiently on the ball, I can post for the 16th not long after this meetup, so that we are still in the nearest meetups section. And if it turns out that I just run a social on the 16th, I might deviate from my stated algorithm and post it anyway.
