What we're about

The Berlin Rationalist Community.

We have different kinds of meetups (see http://lesswrong.de (http://lesswrong.de/)):

Rationality Meetups

These are irregular social meetups that feature a relaxed atmosphere and soup and are great for longer conversations and discussion in small groups.

Sequences Reading Group

In the biweekly reading group we focus on extracting insights from the LessWrong sequences and applying them to improve our rationality.

Effective Altruism Meetups

The biweekly meetups of our local effective altruists at the VEBU offices often host lightning talks and serve as an entry point for EA-related projects.

European Community Weekend

Berlin hosts the yearly three-day gathering of the European rationality community. The weekend is an extremely fun blend of conference, networking event and family gathering.

Astral Codex Ten Meetup

Needs a location

This meetup is an open get-together for readers of Scott Alexander's blog Astral Codex Ten. We meet in Tiergarten and sit either on comfy grass or on blankets that you bring with you. If you want to make sure you have a blanket, take agency and bring your own. The same goes for everything else you expect to want to have access to whether it's food, drinks, mosquito repellents spray, or more creative items. Be agenty ;)
