Inadequacy And Modesty by Eliezer Yudkowsky (LW 2.0) – “The following is the beginning of Inadequate Equilibria, a new sequence/book on a generalization of the notion of efficient markets, and on this notion’s implications for practical decision-making and epistemic rationality. This is a book about two incompatible views on the age-old question: ‘When should I think that I may be able to do something unusually well?'”

New Atheism by Sidrea – “A key point of the New Atheists – the sharp and pointy one which stuck in the craw of the liberal left – was that religion wasn’t merely false, it was bad. The New Atheists contend that the beliefs we hold have consequences for our conduct. That contention, just in and of itself, offends against certain philosophical commitments most on the left have without really being aware they have them.”


There Was Only One Industrial Revolution by Luke Muehlhauser – Many people took about three industrial revolutions, the last of which involves personal computers and the internet. However only the first industrial revolution actually caused a step change in the rate of economic growth. If AI causes an “industrial revolution” the revolution will probably resemble the first one.
