The author will be posting the final chapters over the next month, so we'll be celebrating the end of the story. (There are 100+ chapters, so if you haven't started, you might still be able to catch up.) We might share favourite passages or try to experiment with magic ourselves. :-) On the other hand, even if you're not an HPMOR fan, there'll be pie, and that's a good enough reason to come and have fun!HackLab.To3/14/20156:00:00 PM-5:00:00HackLab.To1266 Queen Street West Suite #6, Toronto, Ontario M6K 1L3

31EuropeFinlandFinland ProperTurkuhttps://www.facebook.com/events/416106695234609/"Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is an alternate universe Harry Potter fanfiction written by Eliezer Yudkowsky, an AI researcher and decision theorist at the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence. The story focuses on a Harry Potter who enters Hogwarts after having been raised with an Aunt Petunia who married a scientist. The fanfiction is known for possibly being the most reviewed Harry Potter fanfiction, with over 20,000 reviews on Fanfiction.net as of 29 June, 2013.Plot Harry Potter has lived for 11 years with the Evans-Verres - Petunia and her scientist husband Professor Michael, reasonably happy but unaware of magic. One day, he receives a letter addressed to Mr. H. Potter inviting him to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Sceptical, he nevertheless agrees to a visit from Deputy Headmistress Minerva McGonagall for a demonstration of magic. With magic now seemingly a proven reality, Harry now takes his place at Hogwarts, "armed with Enlightenment ideals and the experimental spirit." Now, with all rationality he needs to fight against him worst enemies and himself fights." http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Harry_Potter_and_the_Methods_of_RationalityThe story arc is about to come to an end and there are parties being organized all over the world. Now also In Turku. http://hpmor.com/notes/ Ordered some paperback copies with the first 17 chapters. Preference will be given to US deliveries, but hopefully we'll get some as well.

If you want to bring something else, that's also cool, please message me so that I can coordinate it. (Empty handed people will also be accepted).The venue will be my house by default, in Herzelia.

49EuropeUkraineDnipropetrovskDnipropetrovskhttps://vk.com/hpmor_wrap_party3.14 в день числа Pi, состоится публикация завершающей главы данного произведения. Предлагаю всем кому интересно собраться и отметить это событие/пообщаться на интересующие темы. О HPMOR: Петуния вышла замуж не за Дурсля, а за университетского профессора, и Гарри попал в гораздо более благоприятную среду. У него были частные учителя, дискуссии с отцом, а главное — книги, сотни и тысячи научных и фантастических книг. В результате в 11 лет Гарри знаком с квантовой механикой, теорией вероятностей и другими полезными вещами. И главное — он очень рациональный, а это куда лучше, чем укус радиоактивного паука.Vladyslav Sitaloroot@stvad.org3/14/201510:00:00 AM2:00:00

44North AmericaUnited StatesMichiganFerndalehttps://www.facebook.com/events/441576772660101/38 parties on 4 continents will celebrate the release of the final chapter of "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality". http://hpmor.com/ The wrap party for Michigan USA will be at i3detroit hacker space in Ferndale. We will teleconference with as many other parties as possible. I will provide food and drinks, including sweet and salty snacks, Lebanese combo platters for dinner, soft drinks, and B Nektar mead from next door. Dozens of board and card games will also be there. Some HPMOR-based projects might take place for door prizes, but will remain a secret surprise until then, because the fancy equipment at i3Detroit has a probability of success lower than 100%. HPMOR is written by former PenguiCon panelist Eliezer Yudkowsky, who founded the Machine Intelligence Research Institute and the rationality community LessWrong.org. HPMOR makes Harry Potter's universe have something to do with artificial intelligence, and let's just leave it at that to avoid too many spoilers. Each chapter is intended to teach something about how rationality works. It has 17,417 reviews on Fanfiction.net, 7,832 subscribers to its subreddit, and 7,291 Facebook Likes, an animated trailer on Youtube, a giant TVTropes comment thread, and endless fan art on Deviantart. I am currently arranging carpools for several people from Ann Arbor. Let me know if you need a ride and I'll help you coordinate.Matt Arnold3/14/20153:00:00 PM-5:00:00i3detroit1481-A Wordsworth, Ferndale, Michigan 48220

I'll be there from 2pm until at least 5pm, ready to discuss the book, the void in my life after the hype of the last few weeks, rationality, armchair physics and just about anything else. In an attempt to be recognisable as a Ravenclaw, I will wear blue ribbons in my bronze-ish hair.

54AsiaIndiaBangaloreBangalorehttp://www.meetup.com/Bangalore-LessWrongers-Meetup/events/221043422/There are quite a few resources on the lesswrong site itself for meet up activities that focus on instrumental rationality. One good starting point is this http://lesswrong.com/lw/crs/how_to_run_a_successful_less_wrong_meetup/. http://wiki.lesswrong.com/wiki/Less_Wrong_meetup_group_resources. Incidentally, this coincide with the Pi-day (Crazy U.S notation of month.date, go figure.). So am hoping someone can come up/bring with a nice math-related surprise. And here's a mathy joke(for appetizer). http://www.reddit.com/r/Jokes/comments/2yg951/i_just_watched_a_movie_about_a_yx_graph/ This week we're gonna be playing: 1. 20 Questions 2.
