Kocherga’s leaflet

Some con­text: Kocherga is a ra­tio­nal­ist com­mu­nity hub in Moscow.

There was a large crowd­fund­ing cam­paign for print­ing the Rus­sian HPMoR edi­tion last year. Kocherga was the main lo­cal pickup point in Moscow; we dis­tributed around 5000 copies to 3000 peo­ple.

We wanted to pro­mote Kocherga, ra­tio­nal­ity and EA among these peo­ple (most of them just know HPMoR and don’t know much about LW/​EA), so I de­signed a new tri-fold leaflet. We handed it out with each set of books.

The re­ac­tion to this leaflet was quite pos­i­tive, so I thought it’d be use­ful to do an English trans­la­tion of it and share it here:

Some notes:

  • Cap­i­tal let­ters in “What’s hap­pen­ing in Kocherga” list read “cthulhu fh­tagn” in Rus­sian, but I wasn’t able to adapt it to English. This might ex­plain why the list looks kinda di­s­or­ga­nized.

  • The trans­la­tion is quite crude, it took me an hour and I didn’t edit it as much as I could. If the tone feels a bit off, that’s prob­a­bly the rea­son.

  • The la­bels on the Dun­ning-Kruger graph are «Com­pe­tence» on x axis and «Test re­sults» on y axis.

  • Here’s an photo of the ac­tual leaflet with HPMoR books: https://​​www.in­sta­gram.com/​​p/​​BqC7eQfl7T7/​​

  • If you re­ally like the leaflet and would like to adapt it for your lo­cal com­mu­nity, let me know and I’ll share the InDe­sign source file with you.

PS: We’re still fi­nan­cially trou­bled, so if you like what we’re do­ing and want to make sure we keep do­ing it, please con­sider sup­port­ing Kocherga on Pa­treon.
