Discussion article for the meetup : London diaspora meetup: weird foods - 24/01/2016

WHEN: 24 January 2016 02:00:00PM (+0000)

WHERE: Shakespeare's Head, 64-68 Kingsway, London WC2B 6AH

Last time, we had around 20 people show up, and had to split over two tables. I count that as a success!

This meetup, we're going to be experimenting with weird foods.

What that actually means is: I'll bring some Joylent for people to try. If you have something that seems like it might count as weird food, and if you want to bring it to share, that would be great. Weird foods might include other meal shakes (e.g. soylent, queal, huel), solid meal replacements (mealsquares), miracle fruit, or military MREs. But really, if you think it counts, go for it.

Apart from the presence of at least one weird food, it's going to be an informal discussion meetup, with no set topic. If there's a topic you want to talk about, feel free to bring it.

Event on facebook. (Should be visible even if you don't have facebook.)


Parts of LessWrong London have been feeling like the association with LW no longer really captures what we're about. Several of us have pretty much stopped reading the site. So we're doing an experimental rebrand as a diaspora meetup group.

The diaspora includes, but is not limited to: LessWrong, SlateStarCodex, parts of the Effective Altruism movement, the bit of tumblr that brands itself 'rationalist tumblrsphere'.

If you feel like you want to hang out with the sort of people who are involved with those things: welcome! You are invited. You do not need to think you are clever enough, or interesting enough, or similar enough to the rest of us, to attend. You are invited.

The pub is the Shakespeare's Head in Holborn. There will be some way to identify us.

People start showing up around two, and there are almost always people around until after six, but feel free to come and go at whatever time.
