Less Wrong started off as an online community devoted to improving human rationality. We're building an in-person community of effective, rational, awesome people here in Jacksonville. We're passionate about using the latest science to do this, in particular knowledge of cognitive biases (peculiar ways in which our brains consistently lead us astray) and effective countermeasures (mind- and life-hacks that help us use our brains better). We believe that fighting the truth is almost always harmful, and Less Wrong is a place where all ideas - however controversial or mind-blowing - get a fair hearing. A great introduction to the philosophy that most of us share can be found here (it's long, but to a particular sort of warped mind, hugely entertaining): http://wiki.lesswrong.com/wiki/Sequences

    "Hello everyone. Is there going to be a meetup any time? How about another meet and greet if nothing else. I was unable to attend the last one, but anyone who joins this group must have a fascinating brain to pick. :D"

    "Not much to me. I question, quantify, and compare most everything I ponder. Always looking for 'new material'.­ I'd like to go from being so much a thinker to more of a do-er."

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
