Sunday August 2, 12pm (PDT) — talks by jimrandomh, johnswenthworth, Daniel Filan, Jacobian

This Sun­day at 12pm (PDT), we’re run­ning an­other ses­sion of “light­ning talks” by cu­rated LessWrong au­thors (see here for pre­vi­ous weeks’ tran­scripts).

  • Each talk will be 3-5 min­utes fol­lowed by dis­cus­sion. After­wards, we’ll have a hang­out in break­out rooms. The talks will be short and fo­cus on pre­sent­ing one core idea well, rather than rush­ing through a lot of con­tent.

  • We want to give top LessWrong writ­ers an in­ter­est­ing space to dis­cuss their ideas, and have more fruit­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween users. Think of it like a cross be­tween an aca­demic col­lo­quium and some friends chat­ting by a white­board.

If you’re a cu­rated au­thor and in­ter­ested in giv­ing a 5-min talk at a fu­ture event, which will then be tran­scribed and ed­ited, sign up here.



When? Sun­day Au­gust 2, 12pm (PDT)
