Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals.

This week, Eric Huff will induct us into the Bayesian Conspiracy, as we learn what it means to think probabilistically.

 

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is often swearing.

-This fanfic is the most engaging way to learn what "rationality" is all about

LessWrong: www.lesswrong.com
-A community blog on rationality. The Core Sequences are most relevant to our meetup group. Also covers topics like AI and x-risk.

 

Everyone please bring a ferret.

    Would entice me further if any presentation description also shows the background of the speaker relevant to the discussion. Looked up Eric on LinkedIn, see he is a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in Astrophysics, way cool.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
