Houston Hackerspace Meetup: Sunday May 22, 5:00PM

Sun­day May 22, 5:00PM

TX/​RX Hackerspace

2010 Com­merce St

Hous­ton, TX 77002

Goals:

In gen­eral, to be­come more awe­some. In spe­cific, to learn about cog­ni­tive bi­ases as a group, figure out how to be­come less wrong, and have fun while do­ing it. We also may ex­per­i­ment with in­te­grat­ing a hack­erspace, which already has sev­eral less­wron­gians, into the group. The first meet­ing will mostly be a meet and greet to es­tab­lish fu­ture di­rec­tions, with per­haps a video lec­ture and dis­cus­sion on cog­ni­tive bi­ases de­pend­ing on the time con­straints of the peo­ple who come. The door to the build­ing will have a sign marked Less Wrong, and the nearby empty lot can be used for park­ing.

Dvo­rak, a thus far much more ac­tive mem­ber in the com­mu­nity, will be pro­vid­ing me with sup­port in or­ga­niz­ing the group.

Edit:

There will be pizza. Also, a pic­toral view

Front

This is the set of build­ings that the hack­erspace is in. It’s difficult to see our front from this an­gle—un­for­tu­nately google maps de­cided to map ev­ery­thing but our lit­tle sec­tion of com­merce street. It’s near where the white truck and red mo­tor­cy­cle are.

Empy Lot

And this is the empty lot that you can park in.
