LessWrong/EA New Year’s Ultra Party
Moderator’s note: We’ve decided to pin this until the event begins. We won’t do this for most events, but this one is unusually globe-spanning, almost like a miniature conference, and it seems like a great chance for the whole community to meet up.
Edited: 31.12.2020 Added more details about the party.
LessWrong and Effective Altruism Anywhere are hosting a 16-hour, globe-spanning (Europe & Americas) party in LessWrong’s Walled Garden. Join us to toast the year to come, roast the year that was, and enjoy the sweet company of others we won’t be denied.
