Over the years I may be learning to use Twitter. Recently I've started to make threads, although not posting all tweets at the same time. I recommend you link/chain yours too, if you want to find them later

For me, first the pinned tweets:

My first thread was on incentives alignment, some people say it's related w/ skin in the game. I derailed it later when I should have started a new one. We cannot edit tweets from the past, time never goes back, Twitter subcommunicates a good lesson.

Technically I'm linking threads, so it's a tree. But they refer to each other. So it's a graph.

I started a new thread on incentives alignment, but I am more concerned about the particular alignment of economic profit and human well-being (next thread).

This is the long due thread about the alignment between economic profit and human well-being. In the past, this alignment was not too bad, but everything changes. IMHO addressing it should be a priority due to the opportunity cost in terms of well-being.

Here's a thread (w/ some sub-threads) about why I should quit my job (maybe you too). I never planned to write it, but I was finding too much information pointing in that direction. Maybe YouTube algorithm + selective perception? Worth considering anyway:

Remaining threads are short and not so relevant, a replacement for moments, like this winter thread:

Real AI risks thread

I try to focus on in silico AIs, but remember: companies are AIs that run on wetware.

No relativism or nihilism thread. Some things matter, some things can be known. You may be wrong. Deal with it. Try to be less wrong. I appreciate corrections.

Short thread on immortality and transhumanism

Nothing is perfect, in our politics, economy, biology,… Why shouldn't we strive for improvement?

Education is broken and humanities are useless, also: science is not what you think it is, neither engineering; philosophy and art are self-sustained bubbles. We all need more evidence. I'm giving approximately none, I'm OK with your mistakes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Things happening in academia that are really bad signs.
