  • BIDA Family Dance Timing

    April 2nd, 2018
    contra, organizing
    Someone was asking how the BIDA family dance timing works, so here's it written up:
    5:00
    hall opens, family dance musicians set up on the floor
    5:30
    family dance starts
    5:45
    most of the kids who are coming are here by now
    6:00
    sound person arrives for evening dance, starts setting up on stage
    6:30
    family dance ends, start setting up for potluck
    6:34
    tables and chairs are set up, people start getting potluck food
    6:41
    everyone has their food
    6:45
    evening band starts their sound check
    6:50
    most of the kids are done eating, back to running around
    7:00
    most of the adults are done eating, though still at the tables
    7:05
    beginner's workshop starts by the stage, people keep eating
    7:15
    people start cleaning up from the potluck
    7:30
    workshop ends, evening dance starts

    And a series of diagrams showing how this works out in our hall:

    While this looks like very tight timing when I'm describing it, the actual timing tends to feel pretty good.

    Decision theory and dynamic inconsistency

    Here is my current take on decision theory: When making a decision after observing X, we should condition (or causally intervene) on statements like “My decision algorithm outputs Y after observing X.” Updating seems like a description of something you do…

    Your actual output depends on a lot more than just how quickly you finish a given programming task. Everything besides the literal coding depends deeply on the way you interact with the organization around you.
