Ruby’s Public Drafts & Working Notes
Update 2019-07-16: I’m experimenting with renaming this feeding to Public Drafts & Working Notes. I want to see if that feels write as I continue (hopefully) to post here.
This is an imitation of Raemon’s experiment for short-form content on LW2.0. I’ll use the comment section of this post to share relatively short and informal write-ups of ideas of I’m thinking about. Closer to the style I’d adopt for Facebook, but still serious in content.
When writing full-on posts I feel the need to pay a lot of attention to the structure, content, editing, including all supporting material, being rigorous, etc. It feels like there’s a quality bar to full-on posts. It would probably be fine to write things which are a little more rough, but it still feels bad to write to a lower level of polish than than the rest of the posts on the Frontpage.
The result is that I don’t share many thoughts I think are likely worth sharing . I’m hoping that this feed will offer an affordance for low-friction writing. It might also end up serving a place where I share early drafts which later become refined posts.
A nice name would be: Ruby’s Random Ramblings about Rationality. Well, it’s a very nice alliteration but a little misleading—probably won’t be that random or rambly.
Please don’t create top-level comments here, but feel free to reply to comments.
 Also sometimes it’s nice to share what you’re thinking about with others without worrying too much about how valuable is this really?
