Edit 11 Feb 2022: Jeremy made a post about starting a low-commitment LW Article club where he'd be linkposting articles on a weekly basis from this list for people to engage with!
Context / Motivation:
- I am interested in thinking a lot recently about how we could share ideas from the rationalist community to EA and related subcommunities (perhaps communicating the same ideas in different ways).
- I've been diving into LessWrong recently and remembered why I hadn't for a while - it's really overwhelming. Even with the sequences and curation, it's a lot of content, and it's not always obvious to me which posts I'd find most valuable.
- I think it's better to read fewer posts in more depth to properly understand them.
- I think it's likely that some posts or ideas will be much more relevant to EAs than others, but I'm not sure which ones
- I'd be interested in recommendations for standlone posts (e.g. All debates are bravery debates), specific concepts (e.g. schelling fence or doublecrux) , or specific sequences (e.g.)
- If you have time, I'd love to know why it's valuable to you
Any particular Wentworth posts that stand out to you? I'd like to include some in the LCLWBC (full credit to you for the name!), but I am not too familiar.
John had several posts highly ranked in the 2020 LessWrong review, and one in the 2019 LessWrong review, so there's a community consensus that they're good. There was also a 2018 LessWrong review, though John didn't place there.
In general, the review is a great resource for navigating more recent LW content. Although old posts are a community touchstone, the review includes posts that reflect the live interests of community members that have also been extensively vetted not only for being exciting, but for maintaining their value a year later.
