A friend of mine runs Nerve, the new science magazine at the university where I work, and I offered to write about rationality for their second issue. The article is just out, with some quotes from some people you might recognise! Enjoy.

EDIT: the Wordpress version is now up, for those allergic to Flash.

I don't suppose there's a non-Flash version of the article?

Julia Galef is quoted as Julie Galef on page 21.

Good catch. Just chatting to the editor to try to get this fixed - apparently there's a problem with the edit feature on issuu.

ETA: unfortunately it can't be changed. It can be re-uploaded but then they'd lose the view stats.

A good article, but t I think you introduced and name-dropped too much new jargon.

The brief description of Less Wrong in that article will sound very strange to anyone not already familiar with us.

I guess it does a little - the piece was edited slightly from my original submission. I don't think it sounds all that strange, though I'm almost certainly biased on that front...
