the joyful reduction of uncertainty
Hey! You've found the official website for the Kitchener-Waterloo rationalist community. We're a social club for people in KW who like to talk about cognitive biases, prediction markets, Moloch, Harry Potter fanfiction, calibration, what we owe the world, and becoming e m b o d i e d.
We meet up every Friday, generally in Uptown Waterloo. To get notifications, go to our LessWrong page and click "subscribe to group" (you will need an LW account). Meetups are also posted on meetup.com if that's more convenient for you.
Please feel free to come hang out even if you feel awkward about it, are new to the community, not like “the typical rationalists”, worried people won’t like you, are part of TPOT, or anything else.
We welcome people of all ages, genders, and orientations.
