Office Hours is an hour long Zoom call we have on Friday’s from 2-3pm ET. The event is exclusive to Epsilon Theory members and is a great way to hear Ben’s thoughts on markets, politics, and current events. Every Monday I post a brief recap of the previous OH. This is not a transcription of the call and doesn’t cover everything. But it does outline the main conversations we had.
Before this was posted on the ET Forum, but we’re moving it to the front page so more people can see the recap and understand the opportunities of Office Hours.
These are the major topics and ideas we discussed during the 8/05/2022 Office Hours as well as some of the biggest takeaways. If you have something you want to add to the conversation, let us know in the comments and join us next time.
We have a few more announcements about a potential large scale in person ET event this spring. First, the event will be called ET Connect. We know that a huge priority for the pack (and for us) is to connect with one another. To meet our online friends face to face and get to know new people. Second, we’re so excited for this, we want to do it twice. We want to hold two multi-day sessions back to back. This will increase the number of people who can attend and give those interested a chance to choose the session that best fits their schedule. We want ET Connect to be available to as many people as possible. Nothing is finalized yet though, but I’ll keep you up to date with the news.
We’re also looking for suggestions for topics to be run by Ben, Rusty, or pack members. What are some things you’d like to discuss or learn about? I know Ben has expressed interest in running a writing workshop.
A New Note:
A key art of Office Hours is the chance to learn about and contribute to new notes before they’re published. Last week we got to hear Ben talk about his ideas for a new note. We discussed the idea of preserving our personal stories so the next generation will know us. So your grandchildren can know your grandparents in a way beyond family anecdotes. The chat was quick to latch onto the idea and draw comparisons to real life projects that do something similar and fictional stories that incorporate that idea.
Others disagreed with Ben. User Zenzei remarked that the scale of Ben’s original idea might be too big. If you feel that your story is one of thousands just like it there can be a sense of ‘well what’s the point’. Zenzei also said that their sense of humanity has increased the more they began to work and think locally. What do you think?
We’d love to hear your thoughts on these ideas and hope that you’ll join us next time. If you haven’t already, sign up to access the Forum and Office Hours.
