Aleksei, alls I'm saying is it seems like Eliezer Yudkowski has lost his edge. The fire that was once in his gut is now in the part of his brain implicated in money making. With that said, I like the Bloomingdales Executive Training program for him.


"If my (future) popular book on rationality becomes a hit, I'll upgrade to big-name fees. And later in my life, if all goes as planned, I'll be just plain not available."

What do you mean by later in your life? 30, 40, 50 years old? I'm asking because this seems to imply that you're not very confident that you'll initiate a hard takeoff anytime soon. It seems like you've come to accept that the world will be basically the same in 20-30 years as it is now. I guess what I'm saying is, you've created a situation where the best you can do is try, and trying likely won't get the job done. You need to do: you need to create friendly AI and believe that you will (even if this turns out to be misinformed in the long run).
