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.

Europe Phase: 9PM-2AM CEST /​ 2PM-7PM EST
