Congrats on the new born!
My cryptocurrency quant hedge fund is looking to hire engineers. If you’re curious, PM me. :)
Well, I already tried recruiting you for our hedge fund, so not really. :D Although it’s possible with covid there’s a larger pool of remote jobs available.
But yeah, given all those constraints, it’s quite possible you’re in a relatively optimal position.
First off, kudos for putting your view up for criticism.I’m surprised nobody has mentioned the opportunity cost. Putting the question of whether or not ads are good or bad aside, do you think you can find a job that creates more good in the world and pays about the same?
Very cool, this sounds a lot like my own story too. Welcome to the club!
I like this format a lot: here’s what I wanted to learn, here’s what I did, here’s my proposed better method. I. A world where we learn things via an amalgamation of blog posts and videos, this seems like an efficient way of helping others learn.
I think there should be a tag for this method!
Thank you, this looks extremely useful. It’s been on my todo list to learn about transformers for a while. And this looks like a great path to follow.
I commit to respond with how my learning went once I follow this guide. (Will probably be later this year.)
What are your thoughts / advice on working as an individual vs joining an existing team / company when it comes to safety research? (For yourself and for others)
Thank you for looking into this and posting about it. This question has been on my mind a lot.
Strong upvote from me. I appreciate the decently broad source of quotes and I hope you’ve read some of that material fully. I think the question is interesting and worth serious pondering, though I’m a bit sceptical as to how much progress on it is really possible outside of individualistic discovery via something like meditation.
Father love and mother love is an interesting way of looking at it. Though it’s not clear “Father Love” is actually a thing or just something we projected onto actually existing “Mother Love.”
To me actually the problem of evil seems relatively unimportant. Just drop the “omnipotent,” which doesn’t make much sense anyway. (Why work with infinities when finite things are way more likely?)* The much bigger, much more interesting problem is the lack of communication.
Humans are certainly not the best at speaking or listening. But we understand some things. You could imagine god explaining things to us at our level, even if only to say: hey, you guys are just getting started; don’t worry, nothing makes sense so far, but in about 1000 lifetimes it will.
I have some thoughts / responses to that question, but that’s not really the topic here.* Edit: Not to suggest that this is necessarily the solution, but there are a number of solutions with which I’m fairly satisfied.
It’s funny you mention Texas because a lot of Bay Area people in the past few years left for Austin, Texas.
Satvik mentioned you had a way to go from hash to the source code?
Not sure I follow. What prevents republicans from joining democrats?
I think the point is that you get peoples opt into the party and then show during elections that this party can indeed swing votes. That’s the proof of work.
No I don’t have time for this unfortunately. I suppose it’s probably worth at the very least publishing this on medium and posting to relevant subreddits.
I like this a lot and I think it’s worth serious effort to research some of the assumptions and obvious failure points (brought up by others here, although I think half of them are not addressing the core of your proposal)
Nice post. Haven’t heard of Flesh and Blood before, I’ll check it out.
But yeah, poker strikes me as the fastest way to learn this skill since each “match” is so fast, especially online.
I’m curious how brain uploading / intelligence amplification interacts with this scenario. It’s possible we would be able to keep up for longer.
For any given thing you want to do imagine what it would take to do it without Vim and it’s just more & usually more awkward key strokes.
I’d say the only place where I still use mouse is to jump to a completely random place in code.
I think about ~1year into using vim, I thought the same thing: I’m doing the same thing, just with more quicker steps, so it feels faster.
But after that I persisted and now it’s actually faster. Part of it is expanding your repertoire and memorizing it (where you don’t have to think about it at all). Also vim editor by itself I still find very clunky, but using vim shortcuts in something like PyCharm is $$$!
Nice; didn’t know about ;
