[The US is] standing at the precipice of putting a complete nutjob in the most powerful office in the world, and all people can do is complain that the alternative is too...normal.

it's no surprise that the most tolerant communities attract people who are difficult to tolerate.

We [gave] [rich people] the mandate [to improve society according to their own values] through our politics: loose campaign finance laws and lower tax rates. Through policies that have reinforced exceptional wealth disparities, we have allowed them not just to govern themselves, but us as well.

If progressivism is strong enough to elect presidents, question white supremacy, legalize weed and gay marriage, why can’t it get a fair wage in the cities, limit rent, provide better public transport and housing? What sort of revolution is this?

I don’t hang out with people who self-identify as capital-S Skeptics. Or Atheists. Or Rationalists. When people like this get together, they become tribal. They pat each other on the back and tell each other how smart they are compared to those outside the tribe. But belonging to a tribe often makes you dumber.

Saying you want more progress, however stridently, is less progressive than working to make more progress, however modestly.

and maybe in a hundred years we won’t be around any more, maybe yeah the planet will be a mess and we’ll all be dead, and if other people come from the stars we won’t be around to meet them and say hi! how are you! we’re people, too! you’re not alone any more!, maybe we’ll be gone

but we built robots, who have beat-up hulls and metal brains, and who have names; and if the other people come and say, who were these people? what were they like?

the robots can say, when they made us, they called us discovery; they called us curiosity; they called us explorer; they called us spirit. they must have thought that was important.

and they told us to tell you hello.

There is a tsunami of mediocre white men running for office. Our self-inflating sense of ability and talents has convinced many of us to run in the face of overwhelming empirical evidence that we are in fact not the most qualified. [Can You Not PAC is] fighting back against the notion that looking like a Ken doll is a qualification for elective office.

Technology is a thing that men do.

Men invent Soylent, and it’s considered technology. Women have been drinking SlimFast and Ensure for decades but it was just considered a weight loss aid.
Quantified self is an exciting technology sector that led tech giants such as Apple to make health tracking a part of the iPhone. But though women have been keeping records of their menstrual cycles for thousands of years, Apple belatedly added period tracking to its Health Kit.
Men alter their bodies with implants and it’s considered extreme bodyhacking. Women bound their feet for thousands of years, wore corsets that altered their rib cages, got breast implants, and that was all considered shallow narcissism.

Given a 10 percent chance of a 100 times payoff, you should take that bet every time. But you’re still going to be wrong nine times out of ten.

All machine learning algorithms strive to exaggerate and perpetuate the past. ... The[ir] fundamental assumption is that the past is correct, and anything coming in the future will be, and should be, like the past.
This is a fine assumption to make when you are Netflix trying to predict what movie you’ll like, but is immoral when applied to many other situations.

I see the people that do the real work and what's really sad, in a way, is that... the people that are the most giving, hard working and capable of making this world better, usually don't have the ego and ambition to be a leader. 
They don't see the interest in superficial rewards,they don't care if their name ever appear in the press, they actually enjoy the process of helping others, they're in the moment
