Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    I read that compulsively even though I probably only half-understood it. Now I must read the entire thing to get the context. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

    “Depending on your perspective, Yudkowsky either completely misunderstands why this is interesting or understands it too well for his own good. The answer is not, obviously, because this is a pressing issue that requires settling. Rather, it is because the setup is that of a really good science fiction story, and indeed of several classics.”

    Huh. And here I was thinking you didn’t care for Ex Machina.

      I was and am ambivalent about the ending’s ambivalence, but it’ll probably top my Long Form ballot.

    The AI box thing annoys me. How people don’t look at that and come up with their own ways to break it, mind boggling. I know it gets into TDS (which, fuuck that noise) but it’s trivially easy to come up with situations where you’d never open the box.What if you’re both AIs being a favorite. You’d think at that point you’d go on to demolishing the rest of Yud, but no.
