Paul Graham on Twitter: "Something I didn't fully realize till the past month: it's dangerous to have a leader whose base holds him to a low standard. If Trump's base insisted he take charge of the Covid-19 response, he'd have to. But since they're satisfied with press conferences, that's all we get." / Twitter —… Continue reading Having a leader whose base holds them to a low standard (PG)
AROUND 15 OR 20 years ago, in the early aughts of this century, it was faddish in certain corners of the history of science to write biographies of obscure figures. The idea was that understanding the life of run-of-the-mill researchers would tell us more about how science actually operates than would studies of rarefied individuals.… Continue reading When Einstein Was Just Another Physicist
So I got into this long conversation with my co-leader of Hack Club & CodeDay a while back.

Introduction This is the story of the Jianruiying, a small elite unit of specially selected Manchu soldiers under the Qing dynasty. They were trained to overcome rough terrain, obstacles, and rivers in order to commence special attacks towards fortifications. In some ways, they are comparable to today's special forces.

My daily routine ends with my first serious creative work of the day: at least two hours writing and revising Evergreen notes.

Idea from Lachlan.
On Tuesday, 12/10/19, I quit my job. Friday 12/13 was my last day. When I quit, I wasn’t sure how vocal I would be about my experience. Part of me acknowledged that the healthiest thing would be to just move on and leave negative thoughts behind me. Another part of me knew that suppressing those… Continue reading On the Aftermath of Quitting: How I Left Glitch
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued guidelines for “community mitigation strategies” to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, which include recommendations for “social distancing”—a term that epidemiologists are using to refer to a conscious effort to reduce close contact between people and hopefully stymie community transmission of the virus.… Continue reading What Does ‘Social Distancing’ Mean?
