I haven't gotten the voting link (I've now emailed to ask), but I am sadly already pretty negatively surprised at how lesserwrong.com has turned out (props to the maker of greaterwrong, though) and very much hope that it doesn't completely replace LessWrong.com. Even if LessWrong.com is just killed ...(read more)

Yeah, this survey was pretty disappointing - I had to stop myself from making a negative comment after I took it (though someone else had). I am glad you realized it, too I guess. Even things like starting with a bunch of questions about the new lesswrong-inspired site, and the spacing between words...(read more)

So there's no way for us to login with our regular accounts before the launch? Is it scheduled for anytime soon?

Karpathy mentions offhand in [this video](https://youtu.be/_au3yw46lcg?t=774) that he thinks he has the correct approach to AGI but doesnt say what it is. Before that he lists a few common approaches, so I assume it's not one of those. What do you think he suggests?

P.S. If this worries you that AG...(read more)

More quality content (either in terms of discussions or actual posts).

P.S. I do see how that might not be especially helpful.

What is the latest time that I can sign up and realistically expect that there'll be spaces left? I am interested, but I can't really commit 10 months in advance.

Apparently the new episode of Morgan Freeman's Through the Wormhole is on the Simulation Hypothesis.
