done. I always like doing these. how will the SSC version be different?

note that it took MIRI quite a long time to get where they are now, about 7 years? in those years FAI was very hard to communicate, but the situation is better now.

I suspect a similar thing may be going on with connection theory, as most of the critics of it don't seem to know very much about it, but are quick to criticize.

taken. I did the whole thing! it actually wasn't that long.

took it. It's interesting to see how the questions change every time I take one of these.

Mark Cuban asking Skip Bayless to Be Specific

it seems that in addition to being terrible forecasters of winning teams, many sports commentators don't even understand the game they are talking about (or it might just be skip, but mark seems to think it's a general problem)

I'm planning on doing this- is there any particular type of feedback you want?

Also, if you run tests, please consider also testing the "transfer step": a set of activities that should occur toward the end of the kata, where participants pair off on their own (after finishing their exercise booklets), and look for examples of sunk costs and the sunk cost fallacy in their own lives. We have some handouts for the transfer step here: 1 [], 2 [], 3 [], 4 [], 5 []. Printing instructions for the booklets are here []. We aren't quite sure how to structure the transfer step yet -- still in early testing there -- so feel free to play around, try something, and let us know how it goes. Much thanks if you do!
Also, tests on non-LWers would be especially valuable, although tests on LW-ers would add info too.
Great question. Yes, there totally is. Best if you could print out copies of this participants survey [], or else have folks complete it online, and if you could accompany those survey results with your own report of what you basically did (e.g., did you go through the whole powerpoint as shown?) and with a brief description of anything that struck you as you were going through.

I could also meaninglessly answer that the length is more important, as it will always be equal or bigger.

the key to finding a wrong question is finding that the answer doesn't help the person who asked it.
