The Bayesian Conspiracy needs to be updated with Jess as a new host. :)
I didn’t even know about this resource. Thanks!
I will be sure to include a transcript in all future episode descriptions/show notes.
Done! Link to the transcript has been posted in the description, and also here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1MjTM4revF1upDvO00y0v8jF8G6HUbcABtFDxVYiLyPc/edit?usp=sharing
Is there a different venue/format for the notes you had in mind?
I’ll do that tonight!
Due to the nature of assembling a bug list, there might not be a whole lot to discuss and do. If we are finished significantly early, we might simply move on to Day 2: ‘Yoda Timers’
The Kansas City Rationalists are putting together a dojo, for the purpose of improving our cognitive abilities, happiness, and efficiency.
For content, we will be using the ‘Hammertime’ sequence. Attendees are expected to read the introduction (‘Hammers and Nails’) and Day 1 (‘Bug Hunt’), as well as put together their bug list. The meeting will consist of meta-discussion about the content, and discussion about our experience putting together our bug lists. Bonus points if you are willing to share the bugs you found!
We will be meeting weekly, at the same time and location.
It works perfectly. Thanks again!
That looks perfect! I’ll test it out later.
My IRL rationality group is preparing to test that sequence. It looks promising, although we do have some quibbles with it. If we successfully finish testing, we’ll publish the details.
This may seem stupid, but I didn’t even think about doing odds calibration on such a small scale. That’s a great idea. Making a pinned Google Keep note now.
I was thinking “Tsuyoku Naritai”. 😊
If I understand you correctly, I wholeheartedly agree that “Less Wrong” is not just referring to a dichotomy of “what is true” and “what is wrong” (although that is part of it, ala ‘Map and Territory’).
There’s a reason rationality is often called “systemized winning”; while the goals that you are trying to win are entirely subjective, rationality can help you decide what is most optimal in your pursuit of goal Y.
Thank you for the encouragement! I hope I didn’t sound like I was fishing for that. I just wanted to emphasize my desire to seek any other more optimal paths.
Good idea! Get comfortable with my own journey before using someone else’s. Makes sense.
Yes! The facebook event page links to our Facebook group.
Just listened to that about 10 minutes ago. Good sequence.
When you say “assumption”, I hear “a thing that is accepted to be true”.
What changes in cognition when something is accepted as true?
Please have a non-leather hardcover option for us vegans. :)
Please no real leather for us vegans. :)
