I can only learn ideas when I have the opportunity to discuss, explain, or debate them with other people. At least for me, learning is a singularly collaborative experience. I see the internet as a way to see if summarizing, writing up, and reiterating the highlights of what I’ve thought about or learned each day can have a similar effect.
I aim to write frequently enough that you don’t ascribe my writing as my opinions, but instead a stream of thoughts. A few things to expect:
My views will likely not be internally consistent, however they will be intellectual honest and the truest possible reflection of how my current understanding of the world.
They are liable to change. And when they do, I will note them publicly and explain my errors.
I will often write to explore ideas, it is not safe to assume true endorsement of any particular idea or school of thought.
They will come from a place of empathy, and when they do not they should be scorned.
This represents a volume in a long journey of experiments to optimize my learnings. It comes with no promise of results, but instead a promise to experiment.
