I'll appreciate feedback on a new podcast, Rationalists in Tech.
I'm interviewing founders, executives, CEOs, consultants, and other people in the tech sector, mostly software. Thanks to Laurent Bossavit, Daniel Reeves, and Alexei Andreev who agreed to be the guinea pigs for this experiment.
- The audience:
Software engineers and other tech workers, at all levels of seniority.
- The hypothesized need
Some of you are thinking: "I see that some smart and fun people hang out at LessWrong. It's hard to find people like that to work with. I wonder if my next job/employee/cofounder could come from that community."
- What this podcast does for you
You will get insights into other LessWrongers as real people in the software profession. (OK, you knew that, but this helps.) You will hear the interviewees' ideas on CfAR-style techniques as a productivity booster, on working with other aspiring rationalists, and on the interviewees' own special areas of expertise. (At the same time, interviewees benefit from exposure that can get them business contacts, employees, or customers.) Software engineers from LW will reach out to interviewees and others in the tech sector, and soon, more hires and startups will emerge.
Please give your feedback on the first episodes of the podcast. Do you want to hear more? Should there be other topics? A different interview style? Better music?
