It seems to me most appropriate to discuss what this blog is and why you should spend your time reading it as my first post. While I have no fears about blogging about anything that I find important or interesting, my special areas of interest and expertise are Economics, Transhumanism, Rationality, Science, and Philosophy. I am ultimately trying to create the best world possible, and I take that very seriously. That means a very careful examination of what "good" is as well as analysis of how to actualize that good. I am a huge believer in the power of dialectic discussion, and I will change my ideas on a dime if I can be proven wrong. I love people who disagree, because it is out of discussions with them that the most can be learned. So that's what this blog is really about --throwing around ideas, discovering new ones, challenging everything, and in the process hopefully contributing a little to the growth of all the people involved and therefore the advancement of humanity itself. I look forward to it.
