Thanks for the plug Milan. For those who don't want to click through: via a grant from LTFF, I've been working on a method for bootstrapping a deep grounding in a subject, starting from knowing nothing. I don't want to take over the thread, but I'm happy to talk about it with anyone who's interested.
One of the fund managers published some thoughts here six months ago.
Full disclosure: I won a prize and attempted to pass the winnings on to Scott, but he turned me down.
Slate Star Codex just published on this. His argument is basically "lots of things look very promising and then fail, and LSD is especially prone to this because it stimulates the insight part of your brain.", although I encourage everyone to read the full post because obviously there's more to it.
If this comment wins a prize I'll pass it on to Scott.
My disorganized, unformatted notes.

Note that he's since retracted his recommendation.
Fixed. Thank you.
The following is presented as an example of how organizing social support is hard, not that this is a bad idea: I find shared meals really stressful, and I know other people do as well. The fact that the default bonding activity is shared meals seems really bad to me. Between eating disorders, medical food restrictions, and simple preferences, just choosing a restaurant or menu can be really fraught.
"Massive drinking" was reported by a friend on my FB wall. I agree with you that it's fraught, but not necessarily more so than the "stand up if this applies to you" game, which one person on FB objected to pretty strongly.
My experience at Wave was that there were things they did that felt supportive and welcoming, that at my previous job would have felt invasive and required an emotional performance. I'm not sure there is a substitute for a healthy workplace.
