1) Effective altruism could use more virtue:

EA says a lot about how to make big decisions, but doesn't say much about how to prioritise on a daily basis.

That's what character virtues are for. Some thoughts on why “effective virtue” could be useful...

When you first hear about longtermism and see e.g. folks working on AI safety it's easy to react: "They've got to be weird & uncaring. Probably wanted any excuse to work on something cool & easy." In my exp. that's importantly not what motivates my friends and colleagues. 🧵

How Using Peripheral Vision Improved My Productivity
How Using Peripheral Vision Improved My Productivity
I’ve been experimenting with this method where I am using peripheral vision and various physical and digital objects as subtle cues to improve attention, creativity, and productivity as well. At least, this is what I tell myself. And peripheral vision is essentially a side mechanism of your vision that allows you to see with fewer eye fixations.
And we are using it every single day. While driving, while checking someone out, or while trying to cheat on an exam.
It is a survival mechanism of the physical world.
I found that organizing your physical space in such a way that you have various subtle cues lowkey telling you what you should do next, is an important feature of environmental design.
Visual Theory
Here’s the evolution of one of my side projects — Visual Theory. I am re-learning how to see.
Write enough and you will start sounding like yourself.
True happiness occurs only when you find the problem you enjoy having and enjoy solving.

Thank you for reading!
How’re you and yours doing this week? Any major changes to your status quo, or are things fairly locked-in and predictable at the moment? I respond to every email I get—consider sending me a message and telling me a bit about yourself and what’s been up in your world.
