Irvine Meetup This Saturday

Where: Underneath this mysterious hexagonal sigil at the University Center food court in Irvine, California. People from LA, San Diego, etc welcome!

When: 8:30 PM on Saturday, February 9th. Sorry for the late hour, my schedule is complicated and this was the only way to make it work.

Who: Anyone who wants. Please feel free to come even if you feel awkward about it, even if you’re not “the typical SSC reader”, even if you’re worried people won’t like you, etc. People who fit those descriptions who decided to come to previous meetups have mostly enjoyed them.

You won’t regret it Only 11.9% of you will regret it, with another 27.7% having no strong opinion either way!

    Awesome, I will try to make it! Long time fan of the blog, I live in Tustin/Irvine area and have always wanted to meet Scott in person!

    I’ve never been to one of these meetups. What typically happens during these events?

    • Nornagest says:

      Chanting, sacrificing goats, the occasional orgy. You know, socializing.

      …seriously, though, it’s mostly small conversations about nerdy stuff. Sometimes there’s food.

    I’ll almost certainly be there (and in all likelihood, so will a number of other Los Angeles people). Looking forward to seeing everybody (again)!

    Decided to check this out last minute since I live pretty close. Got here a little early; grabbing a quick libation and a bite to eat at ‘Eureka!’ nearby right now. Looking forward to meeting some new people!

      Sorry I had to take off a bit early! If anyone wants to continue a conversation about VR game development or geometric algebra please feel free to hit up my gmail, which matches my username here. Nice to meet you guys, hope there are future events in my neck of the woods. I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to everyone, thanks Scott for setting this up!

    It was nice meeting you all in Irvine last night. I was the guy wearing the red dress shirt, the math and science tutor.

    I intend on starting a regular rationalist Meetup at my house in Newport focused on short readings and applications of rationalists principles to problem solving in all domains from personal to social to technical.

    I promise it’s much warmer and the seating is much more plush then the meeting last night.

    If you’re interested let me know. You can reach me through Gmail. My address is my first and last name as above separated by a dot

    Or you can respond to this post and I will probably get back to you soon

    It was great meeting people last night in Irvine! If anyone is interested in joining an email list for future SSC Irvine meetups, feel free to email me at

    Michael, I don’t think I met you in person last night, but I think we are both on the same email list that had previously tried to set up SSC meetups in OC. So maybe we can coordinate together and have more success this time, the turnout last night seemed huge!
