Wouldn’t this be more ore appropriate for an open thread than the quotes thread?
I question the wisdom of reading books that someone was potentially killed for reading without better opsec than Malfoy was demonstrating.
I don’t think so. They’re running on the blockchain, which slows them down. The primary decision-making mechanisms for them are going to basically be the same as can be used for existing organizations, like democracy, prediction markets, etc. Unless you think your bank or government is going to become a seed AI, there’s not that much more to DAOs.
Keep forgetting to say thanks for the advice. Haven’t had the chance to give it a shot yet, but once I get some headphones I will.
You could post this as a top level discussion post here, if you want to make it more available and reduce trivial inconveniences to those without access to facebook.
Didn’t get a response in the last thread, so I’m asking again, a bit more generally.
I’ve recently been diagnosed with ADHD-PI. I’m wondering how to best use that information to my advantage, and am looking for resources that might help manage this. Does anyone have anything to recommend?
In the short-term I’m trying to lower barriers for things like actually eating by preparing snacks in snaplock bags, printing out and laminating checklists to remind me of basic tasks, and finding more ways to get instant feedback on progress in as many areas as I can (for coding, this means test-driven development).
I’m using workflowy as well, and it’s the only to-do list software I’ve ever actually used for more than a few days.
One feature that I’ve wanted for a while is dependencies. Let’s say you need to print out a form, but you need to purchase printer ink first. Being able to hide “print out form for xyz” until “buy printer ink” is completed would be great.
I’ve recently been diagnosed with ADHD (predominantly inattentive). Does anyone here share this, and if so, what resources or books on the topic would you recommend?
My Bayes’ is not very strong, so forgive me. This is about as naive as it gets.
Prior for adult ADHD is about 4%.
For working memory:
2SD difference given ADHD is 35%, and for the rest of the population it’s 2.4%. I’ll use LWM to represent a significantly lower working memory.
This suggests an overall population of 3.7% having a 2SD difference, since 4% x 35% + 96% x 2.4% = 3.7%
So P(ADHD | LWM) = 35% x 4% / 3.7% = 37.8%
For processing speed:
2SD difference given ADHD is 44.9%, and for the rest of the population it’s 8.7%. I’ll use LPS to represent a significantly lower processing speed
This suggests and overall population of 10.1% having a 2SD difference, since 44.9% x 4% + 8.7% x 96% = 10.1%
so P(ADHD | LPS) = 44.9% x 4% / 10.1% = 17.8%
Each of those increase the odds of ADHD significantly above the population baseline, and if you’re experiencing ADHD symptoms in conjunction with results like that, it’s probably worth seeing a psychiatrist.
Learn Python the Hard Way is a pretty solid resource, though I used it before Codecademy came out. Both are excellent practice-based resources for starting programming.
After that, just get python books and work through them. Tools like Flask and Django if you want to do web development, other stuff if you want to do other stuff. If you don’t know if you
Stackoverflow is usually where google will take you when you look for answers to your questions, so you might as well bookmark it.
And if you don’t have something in mind you want to make, but you want to keep practising, try doing some ProjectEuler problems.
Isn’t that the point of the quote?
Typical low-moderation problems. Repeated discussions of contentious but played-out issues like religion, IQ, status of various fields, etc. The basilisk is an infohazard in that sense at this point, IMO. It’s fun to argue about, to the point of displacing other worthwhile discussion.
Internal Family Systems is the analogous therapy technique, I think.
I don’t exactly see how it clashes with heroic responsibility?
“When you do a fault analysis, there’s no point in assigning fault to a part of the system you can’t change afterward, it’s like stepping off a cliff and blaming gravity.”
The general incentives for this one seem better than average, (they generally take a cut of your first year’s income rather than an upfront fee, high average income aster etc.) but I get a different, fixed payment contract since I’m from NZ. It’s tempting, but higher risk than if I were from the US, especially since without a completed bachelors it’d be much harder to get a visa, and work here or in Australia won’t pay nearly as well.
I’m really losing motivation at university and have my own mental health issues, so the prospect of something like that has been somewhat comforting as an escape route.
This has turned into “somnicule’s personal problems” rather than the actual point of the thread, so I’ll leave it there.
I probably need to do some exposure therapy with phone calls, but it’s definitely worthwhile doing that.
Thanks, this is helpful. I’ve been hesitant about contacting family and friends for this, but on reflection there’s no real reason for that.
I have been accepted to App Academy and have been considering it as a faster option to getting high-paying work, but as a younger, international candidate I’d have to pay for flights as well as a US$5000 deposit. It’s something I’d even be willing to borrow money for, given my waning motivation for university, but without an income or much current earning potential I don’t know if I could get a loan for it. And I couldn’t earn enough to go to the round I’ve been accepted to in time.
Rowing for one season, competed in a mathematical modeling competition and didn’t win but got a special mention from the judges, traveled to Ecuador for a month as a volunteer project, did some maths and physics tutoring.
Personal projects are pretty limited, but I’ve got a Django play money prediction market site that I could get running again in a weekend.
Beyond that, there’s nothing that leaps to mind.
