What we’re about
We read Astral Codex Ten, a blog that spans across rationality, science, psychiatry, medicine, ethics, genetics, AI, economics, and politics. https://astralcodexten.substack.com/about
You should join if you're interested in any of these topics and want to nerd out with other nerds! You don't have to read the blog to come to our events. Everyone is welcome - please feel free come even if you feel like you're "not the type of person who normally would fit in at such events".
We mostly have very informal meetups, sometimes including dinner, games, or hiking. Occasionally we have more structured lectures or mini-workshops.
Astral Codex Ten was formerly called Slate Star Codex. The author, Scott Alexander, has written over 1,500 posts. Don't worry, you're not expected to have read all of them!
If you're not sure where to start, check out this compilation of some his greatest works here from one of our meetup members:
