This is the bi-weekly visible open thread (there are also hidden open threads twice a week you can reach through the Open Thread tab on the top of the page). Post about anything you want, but please try to avoid hot-button political and social topics. You can also talk at the SSC subreddit or the SSC Discord server – and also check out the SSC Podcast. Also:
1. Okay, now the adversarial collaboration contest is actually over. Thanks to everyone who sent me their entries. I’m going to start posting them sometime over the next few weeks. If you haven’t sent it yet, I may still post yours if you can get it in before I’m done posting everyone else’s, so hurry up!
2. New mistake on the Mistakes Page. I had previously argued technological progress wasn’t slowing down; based on the work of Tyler Cowen and Ben Southwood I now think it is; my previous position was mistaken.
3. Some good responses to my posts on therapy from various therapists and therapy patients; unless I get around to collecting them all in one place I’ll just link @QiaochuYuan on Twitter.
