This is the bi-weekly open thread. Post about anything you want, ask random questions, whatever. Also:
1. Some corrections and clarifications about Saturday’s links thread: Fort Galt isn’t that cheap (2), some reasons male toddlers might by deadlier, debate on why not more traditional architecture, Desertopa on school discipline, stable inequality is probably just a measurement error, more promising supersonic flight companies, someone listens to the podcast on non-violent private police.
3. And Emil Kirkegaard crunches some numbers that broadly support the latest discussion on here about non-shared environment.
4. A CUTE BABY IN THE INGROUP NEEDS YOUR HELP! Those of you associated with the Bay Area rationality community may know Katie and Andromeda Cohen. They’ve fallen on some tough times and some friends have put up a GoFundMe campaign for them.
5. I finally slacked off so badly that the rest of Less Wrong put their yearly survey together without me. Iff you identify as a Less Wronger, you can take it here.
6. You may notice a new ad on the sidebar, advertising online math instructor positions for Art of Problem Solving. Teach kids higher math! Work from home! Incentivize people to put ads up on SSC!
7. Still a little early for this, but might as well get started: I’ll be done with my residency in about a year and will be looking for psychiatry jobs, especially in the Bay Area. If any of you are in psychiatric settings with job openings, I’d like to hear about it. And if any of you are psychiatrists or other doctors with experience in medical job searches, especially regarding outpatient positions or even setting up your own clinics, and you wouldn’t mind talking to me about it, leave a comment here or email me at scott[at]shireroth.org.
