Cafe Meetup 3/16: Stories of Surprise

It’s been a while since we did this one!

One test of your skill as a rationalist is how seldom you are surprised. In this meetup, we’ll share stories of times when our model did not quite predict something and so we were, in fact surprised. Then we’ll discuss: was that a one-off, or did it warrant an update of our worldmodel? Why or why not?


The meetup is at Central Market, 4001 N. Lamar, in the cafe area. Look for the LW and SSC signs. People start arriving at 1:30 pm, and the main activity (such as it is) will begin at 2:30 pm. Please follow in-store signs and guidance.
