The LessWrong Com­mu­nity is the peo­ple who write on LessWrong and who con­tribute to its mis­sion of re­fin­ing the art of hu­man ra­tio­nal­ity. This tag in­cludes com­mu­nity events, anal­y­sis of the health, norms and di­rec­tion of the com­mu­nity, and space to un­der­stand com­mu­ni­ties in gen­eral.

LessWrong also has many broth­ers and sisters like the Berkeley Ra­tion­al­ity Com­mu­nity, SlateS­tarCodex, Ra­tional Fic­tion, Effec­tive Altru­ism, AI Align­ment, and more, who par­ti­ci­pate here. To see up­com­ing LessWrong events, go to the com­mu­nity sec­tion.

Not all Com­mu­nity posts are tagged with subtopics.


This tag ap­plies to any post about:

While the World Op­ti­miza­tion core tag is for posts dis­cussing how to do good in gen­eral, the Com­mu­nity tag is for the spe­cific, con­crete efforts of our com­mu­nity to ex­e­cute plans.

What ex­actly is the “Ra­tion­al­ity Com­mu­nity?”
