  • Inscrutable Blog Notes

    June 16th, 2013
    blog
    When I get an interesting idea that I might want to make into a blog post I'll get out my phone and make a note. I'm generally in a hurry doing this, because I'm in the middle of something else or don't want to be rude to other people in the room by falling into my phone, so I'll write the bare minimum I think I'll need to remind me of the idea later. Sometimes this doesn't work, and I'll completely forget what I meant by something:
    • Charity conversation with economist
    • Vertical wrapping terminals
    • Proximity keys warnings
    • Lobster stomach signaling
    • Knowledge meeting unlock
    Other times I can remember what I was thinking, but a combination of bad spelling, autocorrect, and me being weird means no one else would understand. Even if they do, they might still think they're silly. Julia looked over my notes and made a list of ones she thought were funny:
    • Pigeons have magnets
    • Throw out bad whiteboard markers
    • Pineapple swelling reduce
    • You should try contra dancing
    • Cat droppings
    • Julia and I are weird, how did we get this way?
    • Cross country fish scale shoes ice
    • Why would conservatives be better at things
    • Flash intros are disrespectful
    • Anyone who sings folk songs should be able to credit their sources
    • Anthropic argument mad

    Decision theory and dynamic inconsistency

    Here is my current take on decision theory: When making a decision after observing X, we should condition (or causally intervene) on statements like “My decision algorithm outputs Y after observing X.” Updating seems like a description of something you do…

    10x (engineer, context) pairs

    Your actual output depends on a lot more than just how quickly you finish a given programming task. Everything besides the literal coding depends deeply on the way you interact with the organization around you.
