Refining your messaging, getting comfortable with talking about what you do, who you serve and why it matters, comes from talking about it! From having conversations…that's how the clarity comes.  You don't have a perfect or complex marketing plan all laid out.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Summarizing the comments on William MacAskill's NYT opinion piece on longtermism, published by West on September 21, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. We are a small community, but our ideas have the potential to spread far if communicated effectively. Refining our communication means being well calibrated as to how people outside the EA community react to our worldviews. So when MacAskill's article about longtermism was published last month in the NYT, I was pretty interested to see the comment section. I started to count various reactions, got carried away, and ended up going through 300 or so. Below is a numerical summary. Caveats Selection bias is present. I would guess NYT commenters skew older and liberal. It's possible the comments don't reflect overall sentiment of the article's readers, because people might only feel compelled to comment when they are strongly skeptical, undercounting casually positive readers. Many people signaled they felt positive towards the article and longtermist thinking, but were entirely pessimistic about our future -- basically "This is all well and good, but _". Sometimes it was hard to know whether to tally these as positive or skeptical; I usually went with whichever sentiment was the main focus of the comment. For the most part, this survey doesn't capture ideas people had to help our long term future. Some of those not tallied included better education, fusion power, planting trees, and outlawing social media. Tallies 60 - Skeptical -- either of longtermism, or our future 20 - Our broken culture prevents us from focusing on the long-term 16 - We're completely doomed, there's no point 7 - We are hard-wired as animals to think short term 7 - Predicting the future is hard; made up numbers 5 - We don't know what future generations will want 5 - We don't even value current lives 3 - I value potential people far less than current people 3 - It's easy to do horrific things in the name of longtermism 2 - This is ivory tower BS 42 - Generally positive 17 - This is nothing new (most of these comments were either about climate activism or seven generation sustainability) 7 - This planet is not ours / humans don't deserve to survive 7 - We should lower the population 6 - This is all about environmental sustainability 6 - Animals matter too 5 - Republicans are terrible 4 - Reincarnation might be true 3 - We should ease up on technology 2 - Technology will save us 1 - Time travel might be true 1 - Society using carbon is a good thing 1 - This idea is un-American 1 - This is all the fault of boomers 1 - Stop blaming boomers Takeaways Overall, I found the responses to be more negative than anticipated. The most common sentiment I saw was utter pessimism, which I worry is a self-fulling prophecy. There was very little reaction to or discussion about the risks of bioweapons and AI. Many people seemed to substitute concern for our long-term future solely with concern for the environment. This is understandable given the prominence of environmentalism -- it's already top-of-mind for many. I think people struggled to appreciate the timescale proposed in the article. Many referenced leaving the Earth a better place for their (literal) grandchildren, or for seven generations from now, but not thousands of years. Thanks for listening.

Welcome to Wednesday as we're covering an announcement by GM and Hertz to move some serious EV volume through rental fleets. We also talk about what the lithium supply is looking like as well as the effects of rising interest rates on Dealers and home owners alike.GM and Hertz announced a joint agreement for the automaker to  provide 175k EVs to Hertz rental fleet through 2027 Order will include Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac and BrightDrop EVs through 2027Deliveries are set to begin in Q1 2023 with the Chevy BoltHertz is investing to create the largest rental fleet of EVs in North America, with tens of thousands of EVs available for rent at 500 Hertz locations across 38 states. The company's current goal is for one-quarter of its fleet to be electric by the end of 2024.“It's exciting that two iconic American companies that have shaped the evolution of transportation for more than a century are coming together to redefine the future of mobility in the 21st century,” said Stephen Scherr, Hertz CEO. Many of the EVs are expected to be deployed in LA and SF due to fast approaching restrictions on ICE vehiclesIn 2021 Hertz ordered 100k Teslas which are nearing fulfillmentEV Demand and supply SNAFUs have pushed prices of the critical component in EV batteries, Lithium, to an all time highLithium carbonate prices in China, the benchmark in the fast-growing market, hit $71,000 a metric ton, according to price-assessment firm Benchmark Mineral Intelligence. This is about four times as high as a year agoPrices are basically following the Chinese EV market which is explodingMajor US automakers have struck deals with lithium producers to secure supplyOver 80% of lithium-ion batteries are used for EVs, said Daisy Jennings-Gray, senior analyst at Benchmark Mineral Intelligence. That will increase to 90% in 2030, Benchmark forecasts, up from 40% in 2015.Refining is and will continue to be a major bottleneck in the production of battery grade lithium“I would like once again to urge entrepreneurs to enter the lithium refining business,” Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk told analysts in July. “There's lithium pretty much everywhere, but you have to refine the lithium into battery-grade lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide, which has extremely high purity. So it is basically like minting money right now.”Rising interest rates are seriously affecting real estate purchases, home equity, and wealth building. And remember, most Dealers have variable rate loans. Every 1% point rise in interest rates equates to 10% less purchasing powerRates are double what they were this time last year meaning 2.9 a year ago  vs 6.1 now. 2.1% delta = 21% less purchasing power$400k home last year is now only $316k with the same mo paymentHome prices remain up however the correction is happeningGet the Daily Push Back email at https://www.asotu.com/JOIN the conversation on LinkedIn at: https://www.linkedin.com/company/asotu/Share your positive dealer stories: https://www.asotu.com/positivityASOTU Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/automotivestateoftheunion

Refining the prediction for OJ 287 next impact flare arrival epoch by Mauri J. Valtonen et al. on Monday 19 September The bright blazar OJ~287 routinely parades high brightness bremsstrahlung flares which are explained as being a result of a secondary supermassive black hole (SMBH) impacting the accretion disk of a primary SMBH in a binary system. We begin by showing that these flares occur at times predicted by a simple analytical formula, based on the Kepler equation, which explains flares since 1888. The next impact flare, namely the flare number 26, is rather peculiar as it breaks the typical pattern of two impact flares per 12 year cycle. This will be the third bremsstrahlung flare of the current cycle that follows the already observed 2015 and 2019 impact flares from OJ~287. Unfortunately, astrophysical considerations make it difficult to predict the exact arrival epoch of the flare number 26. In the second part of the paper, we describe our recent OJ~287 observations. They show that the pre-flare light curve of flare number 22, observed in 2005, exhibits similar activity as the pre-flare light curve in 2022, preceding the expected flare number 26 in our model. We argue that the pre-flare activity most likely arises in the primary jet whose activity is modulated by the transit of the secondary SMBH through the accretion disk of the primary. Observing the next impact flare of OJ~287 in October 2022 will substantiate the theory of disk impacts in binary black hole systems. arXiv: http://arxiv.org/abs/http://arxiv.org/abs/2209.08360v1

Reflecting on his more than 28 years in wealth management, Steve notes that while he had success and partners who supported his growth, ultimately the wirehouse model had limitations. His decision to go independent in 2021 was based largely on his interest in deepening client relationships and optimizing his business model. In today's episode, RFG President Shannon Spotswood and Steve discuss what it's like to create a more fulfilled, intentional, and rewarding career as an independent advisory owner. It's never easy to leave a successful business that has taken years to build. Steve reflects upon his prior illusion of freedom, his passion for his clients, and how “each win matters.”Through his journey to independence, Steve acknowledges improved family connections and deeper intentionality in everything he does. Instead of putting in face time at the office, his focus is now on the things that truly matter personally and professionally. One of the most important mindset shifts for Steve is that he now holds himself accountable, rather than allowing outside influences to impact where and how he invests his time throughout the day.  Earlier growth under the wirehouse model was very different than the way independent advisors grow their clientele. “Passion Prospecting” – coined by Shannon – is something that newly independent advisors often struggle with – not because they don't want to explore it, but because it is so different than what they are used to doing. Now, Steve can lead with what he enjoys doing while seeking others who also share those interests. There is almost zero challenge in attracting the right clients when he hosts events that surround those activities. He has experienced incredible growth from this strategy. Steve recommend advisors make an effort to know where every client likes to eat out, what they like to do in their spare time, and make an effort to connect with them outside of the office. Building a true relationship is key to earning trust and delivering advice.In conclusion, Steve shares his advice for both younger and more seasoned advisors. For experienced advisors like himself, Steve shares that it's easy to keep your blinders on. It may feel like you have a multitude of resources at your disposal, but you should look beyond your existing toolset for other places that may offer better technology, deeper resources and more accessible support. The big custodial name on client statements matters a lot less to clients than advisors think. In fact, all of his clients came with him when he announced his transition, and that is a reflection that relationships and quality service are the two most important catalysts for client retention.As for his advice for younger advisors considering independence, he shares that it really is true that most independent advisors say, “I should have done this sooner.”  Join the conversation to hear all about:●      04:30: Why independence after building a multi-billion wirehouse practice.●      07:55: Time management as an independent advisor.●      09:02: Impact of the transition on family.●      11:15: Building enterprise value on your personal balance sheet.●      15:05: Creating the ideal base of operations.●      17:30: Attracting the right clientele.●      20:00: Refining your story as an independent advisor.●   &

Liquid biofuels should play a key role in the energy transition. Bio-based sustainable diesel and aviation fuels could emit 80% less carbon than cruide-oil based products. But how do we make it happen?Food-based feedstocks are risky because of the need to minimise the risk of food shortages, but there are alternatives: non-food feedstocks and new technologies could produce enough biofuel to power a quarter of all liquid fuel demand by 2050.Waste, agricultural residue and recycling waste plastics could be game-changers and drive biofuel adoption.As ever, policy making must lead the charge in change. It will be in the national interest; biofuels can help achieve net-zero targets and boost energy security. Meanwhile, local governments could convert fossil-fuel based refineries into sustainable businesses that underpin local employment. On the podcast, Liz is joined by Alan Gelder from Wood Mackenzie.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Refining the sharp left turn threat model, published by Victoria Krakovna on August 12, 2022 on The AI Alignment Forum. This is our current distillation of the sharp left turn threat model and an attempt to make it more concrete. We will discuss our understanding of the claims made in this threat model, and propose some mechanisms for how a sharp left turn could happen. This is a work in progress, and we welcome feedback and corrections. What are the main claims of the “sharp left turn” threat model? Claim 1. Capabilities will generalize far (i.e., to many domains) There is an AI system that: Performs well: it can accomplish impressive feats, or achieve high scores on valuable metrics. Generalizes, i.e., performs well in new domains, which were not optimized for during training, with no domain-specific tuning. Generalization is a key component of this threat model because we're not going to directly train an AI system for the task of disempowering humanity, so for the system to be good at this task, the capabilities it develops during training need to be more broadly applicable. Some optional sub-claims can be made that increase the risk level of the threat model: Claim 1a [Optional]: Capabilities (in different "domains") will all generalize at the same time Claim 1b [Optional]: Capabilities will generalize far in a discrete phase transition (rather than continuously) Claim 2. Alignment techniques that worked previously will fail during this transition Qualitatively different alignment techniques are needed. The ways the techniques work apply to earlier versions of the AI technology, but not to the new version because the new version gets its capability through something new, or jumps to a qualitatively higher capability level (even if through “scaling” the same mechanisms). Claim 3: Humans can't intervene to prevent or align this transition Path 1: humans don't notice because it's too fast (or they aren't paying attention) Path 2: humans notice but are unable to make alignment progress in time Some combination of these paths, as long as the end result is insufficiently correct alignment Arguments for the claims in this threat model Claim 1: There is a "core" of general intelligence - a most effective way of updating beliefs and selecting actions (Ruin #22). Speculation about what the core is: consequentialism / EU maximization / "doing things for reasons". Claim 1a: Capability gains from intelligence are highly correlated (Ruin #15) Claim 2: There is no simple core for alignment (Ruin #22), Corrigibility is anti-natural (Ruin #23) Claims 1 & 2: arguments in Will capabilities generalize more? (+ Ruin #21) Claim 3: We can't coordinate to avoid AGI (Ruin #4) Mechanisms for capabilities generalizing far (Claim 1) Capabilities will generalize far if learning / reasoning / cognitive work is done outside of the optimization process, similarly to how human cultural evolution happens outside genetic evolution and proceeds faster. Here are some mechanisms for cognitive work getting done outside the optimization process: Mechanisms proposed by Paul Christiano: performing search internally, natural selection occurring internally, reasoning about how to think better, deploying subagents The AI develops a way to outpace SGD as the way to learn / improve, similar to how humans outpace evolution by cultural transmission + within-lifetime learning. E.g., it writes Google docs to itself, or searches over prompts (or whatever is the prompt analog at that point). The optimization process finds a general meta-learning algorithm, which replaces the previous solution of domain-specific heuristics and greatly increases the rate of learning Sequential reasoning: sharp increase in effective sequential memory/cognitive time between the "aligned" regime and the sharp left turn regime.
