The weekend of April 5th and 6th, the New York Rationality community is hosting the Spring East Coast Megameetup of 2014. It'll be held at the Highgarden Group House / Community Center.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive by Saturday afternoon to have time to settle in. We'll begin at 4:00 PM with a presentation by David Carlson, on "Legal Concerns Surrounding Startups". This'll be followed by dinner and a workshop on Goal Factoring - looking at the things you do and introspecting on why you're actually doing them, to gain insight into your true goals and then develop creative ways to accomplish them.
The next day, we'll be holding an unconference, starting at 11:00 AM. People are invited to prepare 15 minute presentations on whatever they find interesting. Some topics people are preparing include:
• Running a kickstarter
• Talent coefficients and the growth mindset
• Current landscape of the Effective Altruism community
