Idea share is a monthly event, where local speakers talk about things that they find interesting. Plenty of writers speak publicly, but people who haven't written books also have plenty to say. Come hear everyday folks address radical issues that are relevant to our lives. This is not a skillshare, this is an idea share.

Potluck at 7pm. Speakers at 8pm.

Speakers for January 25th:

Lee -- "Do you have to fuck people over to survive? Stories from game theory, and a defending point of view."

A lot of people interested in system thinking and various branches of science are interested in the "Prisoner's Dilemma." It's a thought experiment about being in police custody: will you talk and get released, or keep solidarity with your friends? Classical economics can't explain why people keep solidarity.; This theory problem is supposed to stand in for all the different situations where people help each other. I have a different set of stories about cooperation that don't start by assuming people are in a horrible bind.

Tanya -- "Community Response To Intimate Violence"

The concept of Intimate Violence deepends current common understandings of domestic violence to include all our intimate relationships - whether between sexual partners, housemates, family members, or good friends. It also uses the model of the cycle of violence as a foundation but moves beyond it to look at more complicated power dynamics that exist in most abusive relationships. Examining these power dynamics and responding to them as a community that strives to meet each other's needs instead of relying on the cops or social services is tricky work. Come talk about some options we have for dealing with these difficult situations when they arise in our communities.
