We follow these principles:
Our highest priority is to seek cruxesthrough early and continuous deliveryof unfiltered evidence.
Welcome changing beliefs, even late inwriting. Agile rationality updates beliefs forour culture's collective intelligence.
Deliver useful ideas frequently, from acouple of days to a couple of weeks, with apreference to the shorter timescale.
Readers and writers must commenttogether daily throughout the frontpage.
Consider analysis by properly incentivized individuals.Create for ourselves the environment and support we need,and trust ourselves to converge on the truth.
The most efficient and effective method ofconveying information to and within a rationalityteam is face-to-face conversation.
But it's a pandemic, Zoom is fine.
Actionable ideas, gears-level models, and predictionsare the primary measures of progress.
Agile rationality promotes sustainable writing.The dev team, writers, and readers should be ableto maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
Continuous attention to technical excellenceand good prose enhances agility.
Parsimony--the art of maximizing the amountof noise not learned--is essential.
The best models, problems, and proseemerge from decentralized rationalists.
At regular intervals, the rationalists reflect on howto become more effective, then tune and adjusttheir behavior accordingly.
