More details
We want to give top LessWrong writers an interesting space to discuss their ideas, and increase the amount of discussion and collaboration between users.

Think of this like a cross between an academic colloquium and some friends chatting by a whiteboard.

Since talks will be short, try to focus on presenting one core idea well, rather than rushing through a lot of content. For example, "Here's an interesting concept, and three concrete examples of it", or "Here's a question I care about, and why I care about that question".

Talks can involve slides and screen-sharing.

Each talk will be followed by a 5-10 min Q&A.
