Open & Welcome Thread—August 2020

If it’s worth say­ing, but not worth its own post, here’s a place to put it. (You can also make a short­form post)

And, if you are new to LessWrong, here’s the place to in­tro­duce your­self. Per­sonal sto­ries, anec­dotes, or just gen­eral com­ments on how you found us and what you hope to get from the site and com­mu­nity are wel­come.

If you want to ex­plore the com­mu­nity more, I recom­mend read­ing the Library, check­ing re­cent Cu­rated posts, see­ing if there are any mee­tups in your area, and check­ing out the Get­ting Started sec­tion of the LessWrong FAQ. If you want to ori­ent to the con­tent on the site, you can also check out the new Con­cepts sec­tion.

The Open Thread tag is here.
