I like “quantified charity subculture”, nice. can only imagine how much you were holding back when writing that

also really liked the last fifth of the writeup - it’s an area that admittedly I’m biased to ito critique (on account of seeing it directly from my side of the world), but it’s one that I still think misses more mainstream recognition (for lack of a better term) on 27 Feb 2024 16:52 collapse

I put in 2800 words, it expanded to 3000 words and then was brutally cut down to 2100 at copyedit stage - a FP book review is supposed to be 2000 words. So I’d said a bit more about EA. But yeah, FP is for centrists, so you have to sound nice. Though I linked Emile Torres in Truthdig, muwahaha. on 27 Feb 2024 17:03 collapse

yeah fp is … yeah.

I didn’t notice the links in the archived version (as in, nothing was obviously a link, formatting didn’t indicate any), but I guess there’s not necessarily much you can do about that. nice one on sneaking it through :> on 27 Feb 2024 17:05 collapse

also now I’m deathly curious as to what was left on the cutting room floor on 27 Feb 2024 18:24 collapse

mostly more ranting about Lewis, lol

the editing didn’t actually hurt the message

quite pleased they left in “the Crypto-Kingdom of Bitcointopia in Utah.”
