The purposes of this blog are pretty simple:
- Spread good ideas
- Get rid of bad ideas
What makes this blog different:
- Focus on consequentialism
- Use of linked description compression1 to increase accessibility and save time
- Active editing: If you show me I am wrong, I will change my post to reflect this
You can read my intro post here for more detail.
- While blogs like Wait But Why also use this, the general idea is for someone who understands my words to be able to keep reading, but for those who are confused or curious to be able to zoom in on areas of confusion or interest. For now it is not convenient to add this functionality, so I will not use it as often as I desire, but in future versions I hope to make more use of this with pop-out text boxes or collapsible text.
