What is this?

This is an unofficial community maintained listing of SlateStarCodex Meetups Everywhere. SlateStarCodex is a blog that we like. You can read about origins of these meetups here. Our listing is based on this post.

Please note:

  1. We try to keep the information of meetups up-to-date, but we can’t guarantee their veracity. This is an unofficial community effort, not a full-blown service.

  2. The ‘(next) scheduled meetup’ field may be (or rather, it most likely is) outdated. It is meant to indicate when we last heard of them.

  3. Remember, this is only a glorified text file hosted on Github, not an automagically updating wonder of science.

  4. If the meetup has some kind of contact details (email, FB group, Google group, anything) listed, we encourage that you always try to contact them directly for up-to-date information. Also see issues for changes that are not yet incorporated into the list.

How to use this repository?

Our current solution is very simple and low-tech (this is on purpose): this is a simple text file with some added pretty html.

Press Ctrl-F in your web browser, and search for a location nearby you.

I’m organizing a meetup, what I should do?

We’d appreciate if you created an external webpage (or similar) in the public internet that you regularly update, and then tell us about it so that we can link to there.

Some popular platforms to advertise your meetup are e.g., Google Group, public Facebook event, public blog, LessWrong meetup event , etc etc.

Okay, I have a public webpage / FB event / / a Thing, what next?

Let us know!

  1. If you have a GitHub account, create an issue. (Click the link, ‘New Issue’.)
  2. If you don’t have a GitHub account, please create one.

Your information is outdated!

If you see outdated information / want to get your email off the list / have a suggestion, please create an issue (see above) or if you know how to github, a pull request.

NB. The repository is currently updated only sporadically.

Other SSC-aligned activities?

If you did not find any meetups near you on this list, do not despair. You might consider checking if there’s LessWrong activity near you. (Alternatively you could think about organizing your own event. See this and this for advice. Possible avenues for advertising / finding out if there are other SSC readers nearby: the open thread, subreddit and Discord.)

The SSC Meetups Everywhere: Active / Recent Meetups

This list should include only active or recently held meetups. The meetup groups we have not heard about in over ~two months should be moved to the inactive meetups list.
