Meta: I recently made two similar posts as top-level posts rather than as shortforms. Both got relatively little karma, especially the second. So I feel unsure whether posts/shortforms like this are worth putting in the time to make, and are worth posting as top-level posts vs as shortforms. If any readers have thoughts on that, let me know.
(Though it’s worth noting that making these posts takes me far less time than making regular posts does—e.g., this shortform took me 45 minutes total. So even just being mildly useful to a few people might be sufficient to justify that time cost.)
[Edited to add: I added the “My four main updates” section to this shortform 4 days after I originally posted it and made this comment.]
I really like these types of posts. I have some vague sense that these both would get more engagement and excitement on LW than the EA Forum, so maybe worth also posting them to there.
Thanks for that info and that suggestion. Given that, I’ve tried cross-posting my Schelling notes, as an initial experiment.
