Secret Rationality Base in Europe
In short, I’m wondering what place/group/organisation/activity could do for rationality in Europe what Berkeley does for rationality in the US?
Soon, we’ll have LWCW in Berlin, which I hope will be an occasion to do some networking among people who think seriously about developing rationality communities. But in the meantime, let’s do some brainstorming.
Important note: in comments to this post, please use only consequentialist language. For example, say “If we decided for the base to be on Malta, then X would happen” instead of “I think it should be in Malta, because...”
What would happen if the rationality base was located in [insert specific city/country]?
What could such a place offer to you now, that would make you consider a temporary/permanent move?
What would happen if the European rationality community efforts were centered around some particular research topic (e.g. AI)?
Is there something you can think of that would speed up community-building in Europe?
Of course, share anything else that you think is relevant to the topic.
Also, see you all in Berlin :)
