===North West England, UK===
I am a Less Wrong reader, and I live in Blackburn, Lancashire, England.  I am interested in starting up a Less Wrong meet-up group for North West England.  If you live within, say, an hour's drive of Blackburn, and are interested in founding a meet-up group with me, please message me.  To give a small amount of background on myself - I've been 'lurking' on Less Wrong since it started, but I haven't made any posts or comments to date.  My interests span most of the content of Less Wrong, for example overcoming bias, improving reasoning skills, developing a rational approach to ethics and reducing existential risk.
Many thanks
