Best of LessWrong

Each December since 2018, the LessWrong community comes together to look at the best posts from the previous year, and reflect on which of them have stood the test of time. We hold 2-month-long annual review process. At the end, the thousands of posts from a given year are narrowed down into approximately 50 posts.

Those posts are assembled into books, with custom artwork and editing, as well as collected in these Best Of LessWrong sequences.

If you'd like to get a sense of what intellectual work LessWrong has done in the past few years, this is a good place to start.
