Hey what's up everybody, i'm jason. i found lesswrong as i was researching questions for a quiz app that i'm workin on called wisdom of the crowd app. and i got started doin that cause i started a facebook group called wisdom of the crowd. i noticed right away that you are vibrating at my same frequency so to speak. the rationality philosophy is what motivated me to start that fb group. it's only days old but i got the impression that the idea i had is pretty similar to what you guys are doing here. i love your library lol i'm gonna try to set up a group to test the "wisdom of the crowd" theory. should be able to run a lot more experiments too with the same parameters. So if any of you are interested in playin around with that you are super welcome. Other than that i'm a bit of a musician, been playin around recording covers and trying to make videos for em. making videos is pretty fun. I guess i'm busy like everyone else but open for collaboration. If you have any suggestions that would help me with what you got goin on here, so i don't miss somethin lol.
you're right about all that on all points. and i think one of the posts you have linked is how i found this site in the first place. there are many experiments that i would like to run on a group, i could go on and on about the big questions, but also can it be done in a way where everyone is better for it. try to model it in a decentralized way. since one of the questions i wanna answer is "are they crazy or just stupid" (maybe give that a different name later) i wanna educate the members so they all have the same information. the developers thing is because i wanna make that education more engaging and more fun. something like a messenger instant game that links with the quizes and videos in the education section. i'm not tryin to make a million bucks. in fact i wonder about group owned apps then their clicks come back to them so to speak. it's a conversation to have though. how does that compare to possible future government structures. so the purpose isn't just to test that old theory. but to make the group as a whole better for it. pool knowledge into a data base and raise group wisdom and maybe their mental health in the process. i'm curious and would like to get data on psych/sociopaths, and narcissists. I'm not a scientist or a doctor, so i'm not out to publish results. i kinda wanna have mental health in the priority section cause i believe it is the root cause of many other problems. i wanna try to draw certain insights into society, like what problems would be rendered irrelevant if everyone at least got some mental health education on the more dangerous types i stated above. i wonder if less people would be hurt if they knew about them. and i wonder how many people have mental issues because of them, and not know it. educate and raise the "rationality" of the group as a whole. plus it will be a fun cool thing to do.
