Still Alive

I work a ridiculous amount during the holidays.

Anyway, Eliezer Yudkowsky at Overcoming Bias has an interesting comment on why political ideas just won't die:

our brains simply haven't updated to their diminished power in a super-Dunbarian world. We just go on debating politics, feverishly applying our valuable brain time to finding better ways to run the world, with just the same fervent intensity that would be appropriate if we were in a small tribe where we could persuade people to change things.

My schedule should slow down soon, and the blog should speed up accordingly.
