We haven’t done any exercises yet; today was spent socializing. Brief update, but I’ll give you some idea of what we’ve been chatting about: organizational stuff (schedules and such); what to do with the ground floor (it’s nice retail space but right now the windows are just papered up, so I want a coffee shop); how each individual found Less Wrong and why they stayed and why they applied; our object-level goals; Bitcoin; mathematics; drugs (modafinil, marijuana, salvia…); what the world will be like after the Singularity; tech startups; what to rename Rationality Boot Camp to (we wanted a higher-status-sounding-thing for our resumes).
Tomorrow: intro games (icebreakers?); “meditation and decision-theoretic enlightenment” lesson; “emotional awareness” lesson.
