As a consequence of this post, I have pre-ordered the book and now follow the blog; thank you for bringing it to my attention.

I very much enjoy the incisive commentary, and it makes me wonder about the difference between being a seeker-of-truth and an executioner-of-falsehood.

Here's a link to the actual article. (I'm not sure whether LW2's linkposts are just 100% broken or whether something in the moving-to-front-page process broke this one. Or whether somehow they work for other people but not for me. Anyway, I could find no sign of the actual link.)

I think moving to frontpage might have broken it. I've put the link back on.

Yep, I should make it harder to accidentally delete the link

Maybe we're talking about different things, but from the page I'm on now where I'm looking at and replying to the discussion of the link (https://www.lesserwrong.com/posts/vhAJ4DBXZukE7SNtq/how-popper-killed-particle-physics/) the only link to the actual article is still gjm's. In particular, the title of the blog post is not a link, although I would have expected it to be. To get to the actual article I have to click on the linkpost title in one of the other post listings (Featured/Frontpage/All). This happens to me for all link posts and for different browsers on both mobile and desktop.

Thanks for sharing! Moved to frontpage.
