[sea-list] No meeting today: GiveWell talk Thursday!

Jordan Fernando Alexander jfalex at stanford.edu
Sun May 20 00:28:51 PDT 2018


Hey all, hope your midterms went well and all is good as we near the final stretch of Spring :)  This week we won’t have a meeting, but on Thursday GiveWell will be visiting Stanford!  Even if you made it up to OpenPhil a few weeks ago, this should be a fun discussion - and on campus!

If you’re still looking for an interesting discussion this Sunday, there will be a talk hosted by the Stanford Transhumanist Association (see section 2 below) that you’re welcome to attend!
