I think some images don’t display for me. This is what it looks like for me:
Okay, photos uploaded to Dropbox instead of Google Photos.
For future reference, this is what worked for me, using Dropbox:
Share → Create link
Open in incognito browser (regular browser doesn’t work)
Copy image address
Load into post
I still can’t see them. This is what it looks like now.
As mentioned here, copying images from Google Doc and pasting them seems to work reliably.
It would be good if there were more visible guides on how to post, as discussed in that thread.
Now they load.
The google docs method worked, but you can’t control image size.
I’m now using imgur, which should be recommended somewhere here for authors.
Pictures still don’t seem to be loading
Clicking on ‘Open Image in New Tab’ indicates that the image is hosted by Google Photos, so I suspect the privacy settings are preventing us from seeing them. Maybe Google read Rob’s angry post and have now taken things to the other extreme. :P
None of the images display for me either. This is what it looks like for me:
Let’s see how this works graphically. First, we start with tractability as a function of dollars (crowdedness), as in Figure 1. With diminishing marginal returns, “% solved/$” is decreasing in resources.
Next, we multiply tractability by importance to obtain MU/$ as a function of resources, in Figure 2. Assuming that Importance = “utility gained/% solved” is a constant, all this does is change the units on the y-axis, since we’re multiplying a function by a constant.
Now we can clearly see the amount of good done for an additional dollar, for every level of resources invested. To decide whether we should invest more in a cause, we calculate the current level of resources invested, then evaluate the MU/$ function at that level of resources. We do this for all causes, and allocate resources to the highest MU/$ causes, ultimately equalizing MU/$ across all causes as diminishing returns take effect. (Note the similarity to the utility maximization problem from intermediate microeconomics, where you choose consumption of goods to maximize utility, given their prices and subject to a budget constraint.)
Update: The pictures load for me now
