Here's a form to give the Lightcone team anonymous feedback about this decision (or anything).

Also: Looking forward to the postmortem.

LessWrong open thread, I love it. I hope they become as lively as the ACX Open Threads (if they have the same intention).

I'm reading the sequences this year (1/day, motivated by this post) and am enjoying it so far. Lmk if I'm wasting my time by not "just" reading the highlights.

PS: In case you or someone you know is looking for a software engineer, here's my profile: Preferably freelance, but I'm open to employment if the project is impactful or innovative.

Dang I seem to have not participated.

Can you give the percentiles for people with >130, 140 and 160 IQ (self reported) to determine that the 150 IQ cutoff is not cherry-picked? Does it work like that?

I'm doing it for years already but have not done analysis. My dentist empathized also brushing my gums. GTP has arguments in favor of that when prompted directly.

Has GTP suggested anything unexpected yet?

I don't know how to make Meditations on Moloch into a video. But it has shaped me deeply and I feel it contains a lot of important lessons that could make or break the future.

Closing paragraph:

He always and everywhere offers the same deal: throw what you love most into the flames, and I can grant you power.
As long as the offer’s open, it will be irresistible. So we need to close the offer. Only another god can kill Moloch. We have one on our side, but he needs our help. We should give it to him.
Ginsberg’s poem famously begins “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness”. I am luckier than Ginsberg. I got to see the best minds of my generation identify a problem and get to work.

Thank you for short and sweet the review.

But all the personal connections of the characters before the apocalypse were transient and superficial. Their relationships after the apocalypse aren't.

I wonder how to get that feeling of deep connectedness (I assume) people in small communities and tribes had in the past. An additional challenge is that it might cause people to care even less about people not in their group.

The close knit group that sticks together through thick and thin is a fantasy of mine that hopefully can be achieved without catastrophe.

Great video.

Minor complaint: Is there no way to fix numeric mistakes in post production? Sounds to me like a problem modern sound editing software should be able to fix.

Here are the links to the articles from the books. Let me know if there are any mistakes.

I didn't find "Do Birth Order Effects Exist?", "Challenges to Christiano's Iterated Amplification Proposal" seems to be only on and "Response to FAQ on Iterated Amplification" seems to be a comment and not a post of it's own.

Very nice solution.

You a word here:

Either the AGI has the camera or the AGI has hacked your other nine sensors.
