Wish I had seen this. I announced a Baltimore meetup a few months ago, but the only other attendees came from DC. Let's get our act together. :-)

Well, I'm interested in doing a meetup if y'all are. I'd be willing to host here in Baltimore. I guess express interest and availability here or in PM?

It's a living.

If contracts using outside resources were legitimate it would also be okay for players to (consistently) offer cash rewards for cooperation. That would break the game pretty badly.

Same here. A "pretty sure" confidence level would probably have done it for me.

Smoke weed every day?

Comment by groupuscule on Is cryonics necessary?: Writing yourself into the future · 2010-06-24T07:37:11.363Z · LW · GW

Writing might be inferior to lifelogging as a way of preserving yourself, but it might actually be better than lifelogging as a way of having a specific type of impact on the future. Since neither form of reconstruction is going to provide the same type of experiential immortality as cryonics potentially would, why not attempt to reincarnate your ideal self?

(As far as general anthropological data goes, there's going to be plenty of footage of average schmucks doing random stuff.)

Comment by groupuscule on The Tragedy of the Social Epistemology Commons · 2010-05-22T19:36:27.741Z · LW · GW

Just as all good families are quite similar and bad families are often uniquely different, there's basically one correct epistemology and a whole lot of incorrect ones.

That's a pretty risky analogy.

I was the guy sitting across from you reading "Yoga Time Travel."

As a lurker, I may go to that place and eavesdrop.

Jay-Z proves status wants to break free of its domain.

Comment by groupuscule on Attention Lurkers: Please say hi · 2010-04-22T19:29:59.073Z · LW · GW

Hi, I'm fascinated.

Comment by groupuscule on The Wannabe Rational · 2010-01-25T03:15:59.802Z · LW · GW

A rationalist forum would be interesting not only for the discussions themselves, but also because it would materialize and test some of the more abstract stuff from this site.

Reading the new year/decade predictions conversations, it struck me that effective treatment of outside content should be Less Wrong's crowning jewel--the real proof that rationality makes good ideas.

Your finger will not get burned; it will suffer the cumulative damage resulting from an unusually high quantity of unrelated high-speed molecule attacks.

This strategy works for me. I made the password to my non-work login something that would remind me why I set up the system. (I know of people doing similar things to the phone numbers of people they don't want to call.)
