SSC Meetups 2019: Times And Places

Thanks to everyone who offered to host a meetup. Full list of cities, times, and places is below. If you’re reading this, you’re invited. Please don’t feel like you “won’t be welcome” just because you’re new to the blog, demographically different from the average reader, or hate SSC and everything it stands for. You’ll be fine!

Some suggestions for organizers:

1. Bring a sign that says SSC MEETUP so people can find you
2. Bring nametags and markers
3. Bring a signup sheet where people can write their names and emails if they want to hear about future meetups.
4. If people want to get to know each other better outside the meetup, you might want to mention reciprocity.io, the rationalist friend-finder/dating site. It runs off Facebook, so you have to Facebook friend the other person first.
5. Please record how many people attend; I will ask for these numbers to help with future meetup posts.
6. If you take a picture and send it to me, I’ll try to post it here. I’ll ask for this later, please don’t email these to me until then.

If a city has **asterisks** around its name, nobody volunteered to host a meetup there, but SSC meetup director Mingyuan suspected you might have interested readers anyway. She chose a time, place, and random coffee shop as a Schelling point for these cities. There won’t be any organizers around, and no guarantee of anyone at all, but you can still go. If you go to these, in order to make it easier for everyone to find each other, try to arrive on time, wear something blue on top (shirt, hoodie, etc) as a signal, and/or bring SSC signs.

If a city’s name is in blue, that means I’ll be attending the meetup. I’ll try to announce each of these on the blog, and some of them might be subject to schedule change, so watch this space. A few people from various rationalist organizations interested in getting to know the further-flung parts of the community might be tagging along with me for some of the way.

Please look over your meetup to make sure it’s correct. If you have corrections, further details, or a new meetup to add, please post a top-level comment below containing the text “@MINGYUAN” so she can find it easily.
