This post is part of the Rerunning the Sequences series, where we'll be going through Eliezer Yudkowsky's old posts in order so that people who are interested can (re-)read and discuss them. The previous post was To Spread Science, Keep It Secret, and you can use the sequence_reruns tag or rss feed to follow the rest of the series.

Sequence reruns are a community-driven effort. You can participate by re-reading the sequence post, discussing it here, posting the next day's sequence reruns post, or summarizing forthcoming articles on the wiki.

If I could change one LW-related thing, I would replace HPMOR with a novel-length plot in Brennan's world.

Yes, it would be less effective at gathering funding for SIAI, promoting the Center, and many other LW goals. It'd probably even hurt x-risk prevention.

I'm just that selfish.

I'd like the novel in addition to HPMOR. Think of HPMOR as Eliezer's prentice-piece before writing an actual Novel for publication on dead trees.
