    Unfortunately I can't make it. Today is Microsoft Tuesday which means plenty of frantic reverse engineering and late night debugging. I was hoping to finish it off before 7 pm, but it seems like I've got to stay longer. Sorry folks.

    If no other meetup topic is suggest, how about "Pascal's Mugging"? http://wiki.lesswrong.com/wiki/Pascal%27s_mugging

    For the theoretically inclined, Nick Bostrom's Infinite Ethics paper might provide an interesting read. http://www.nickbostrom.com/ethics/infinite.pdf

    In practice, I think it would be worth discussing events of low probability, high impact and/or unknown utility, both personal (e.g. having kids, becoming rich) and societal (e.g. existential risks, PRISM/dystopian society) and whether the time and effort we spend on each are commensurate with their expected utilities.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
