asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i can't say i have ever encountered this phobia outside of the yudkowsky/reddit/etc weirdos
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: phunphakt re yudkowsky -- d00d has the dubious distinction, among others, of having had 'his' harem... hijacked
mircea_popescu: as to the chat, i'd much hear your malformed oppinions than http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-19#1772852 ; http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-19#1772915 ; http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=%22+orlo%22 ; http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=yarvin ; http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=Yudkowsky and the rest of the http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-08#1767149 ☝︎☝︎☝︎

phf: well, that aside wasn't about you, but about yudkowsky.
phf: my impression is all that lesswrong, rationalwiki, yudkowsky, etc. is basically mentat wiki that took itself seriously.

asciilifeform: they spread leg^H^H^Hmembrane for thiel/yudkowsky/etc al on command tho
phf: "intelligence" "humans are idiots" "kurzweil" "working memory" "genetics" "yudkowsky". it's funny at some point you don't even need to read the log, you can figure out the particular, previously observed failure mode of a person by keywords that stand out

asciilifeform: !#s yudkowsky
asciilifeform: https://intelligence.org << the original thiel/yudkowsky scamatron
asciilifeform: yudkowsky-style charity-laundry.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-09-21#1546197 << and hey, who said yudkowsky was the only player of the 'charilaundry' game. ☝︎
mircea_popescu: apparently the yudkowsky fellow pod' his atrocious fanfic.
asciilifeform: it worked great, perhaps most recently - for yudkowsky.
asciilifeform: doubly so given how yudkowsky campaigns to have anyone trying this, killed
asciilifeform: yudkowsky & co 'debunk' any un-usgtronic item they can think of
asciilifeform: the no. 2 funder of yudkowsky's scam
asciilifeform: trinque: aha as per yesterday's thread re yudkowsky.
mircea_popescu: we now have a precise sum of yudkowsky's total interest in this venture.
asciilifeform: at any rate, the operative fact re yudkowsky is that he 1) took his cult to meatspace, nailing down funding, chix, sycophants, offices, etc 2) jettisoned the now-useless reddit
a111: Logged on 2015-03-20 03:35 mircea_popescu: "Roko's basilisk is a thought experiment that assumes that an otherwise benevolent future artificial intelligence (AI) would torture the simulated selves of the people who did not help bring about the AI's existence. [...] The concept was proposed in 2010 by contributor Roko in a discussion on LessWrong. Yudkowsky deleted the posts regarding it and banned further discussion of Roko's basilisk on LessWrong af
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is probably still thinking of yudkowsky as a rich man, even if in the lottery sense. but he is actually, in effect, an employee - simply a very highly-compensated one
asciilifeform: as with mr mold, yudkowsky 'cheated' by being a rather good librarian
mircea_popescu: anyway, my opinion of yudkowsky fellow has been
asciilifeform: yudkowsky successfully bootstrapped his inner cult to the next level, of being a properly institutionalized and usgized org, and he didn't need the public www any moar.
asciilifeform: yudkowsky, of all people, wrote some story where there was a planet where they learned to make fusion device with ancient greek level tech. and the survivers evolved. into something strange.
asciilifeform: https://www.facebook.com/yudkowsky/posts/10153941386639228
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: mno. in yudkowsky's case, it meant being kicked out of high school.
asciilifeform: yudkowsky is an american
asciilifeform remembers writing to yudkowsky in the late '90s, when both were harmless and penniless crackpots
asciilifeform: would do loads more good than feeding yudkowsky
assbot: Logged on 31-01-2016 14:48:21; mircea_popescu: http://www.xenosystems.net/chaos-patch-99/ << this guy is fucking epic lol. "go is gone. Yudkowsky sounds the alarm." and links a fb posting.

gabriel_laddel: ^ Amazing that this shmuck (Yudkowsky) has funding.
assbot: Eliezer Yudkowsky - Wikiquote ... ( http://bit.ly/1I9fhWN )
mircea_popescu: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Eliezer_Yudkowsky << lulwut.
trinque: "Per Yudkowsky's conception of continuity of identity, copies of you in these branches should be considered to exist (and be you) — even though you cannot interact with them."
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> "It's wise to keep track of what your mortal enemies do, and there's little that more exemplifies Pure Evil in this world than Eliezer Yudkowsky." << Dude is harmless can't even kill the little girl without a troll
mircea_popescu: "It's wise to keep track of what your mortal enemies do, and there's little that more exemplifies Pure Evil in this world than Eliezer Yudkowsky."
mircea_popescu: "Labels: creativity, Psychology, yudkowsky". lol. why ?!
assbot: Richard Kulisz: yudkowsky ... ( http://bit.ly/198rEmI )

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i'm half convinced that yudkowsky's job is to tie up the brain cpu cycles of folks who could amount to something
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: every year shall bring more.. << give the charlatans some credit here. yudkowsky, for instance, carefully disassembled the broken husk of christianity and soldered all the loose pieces together in a way that it sorta runs again for folks on the right half of bell curve
decimation: “There is light in the world, and it is us!" Eliezer Yudkowsky, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality << "We are the ones we've been waiting for" Obama
assbot: Logged on 18-11-2014 15:38:39; asciilifeform: ;;later tell mircea_popescu with regard to the 'abuse of statistical devices' outlined in note iii, the accomplished master of the art is a fellow named yudkowsky (search #b-a log). he isn't an idiot, bastard knows exactly what he's doing, and his cult is a veritable vacuum trap for thinking folks
jurov: but herr yudkowsky was apparently upset at harry's stupidity and wrote a fanfic
asciilifeform: we did yudkowsky here at least five times, iirc
assbot: 18 results for 'yudkowsky' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=yudkowsky
asciilifeform: !s yudkowsky
decimation: lol yudkowsky wrote a harry potter fan book
asciilifeform: anyway 'methods of rationality' is by a fella called yudkowsky
asciilifeform: the yudkowsky cult is like 'borg' from 'star trek', digest and regurgitate everything. eventually they will annotate #b-a and claim that all of the interesting ideas belong to selves
decimation: so I find these AI doomsayers highly amusing. most of them would laugh at a Christian's claim of revelation (knowledge which comes neither through induction nor deduction) but are more than happy to jump on board the eliezer yudkowsky tard train because "I know it is true"
undata: yudkowsky worships at its altar
asciilifeform: yudkowsky et al ?
decimation: yeah yudkowsky and him co-wrote a paper on the 'ethics of artificial intelligence'
decimation: hehe yeah asciilifeform this guy has to be in yudkowsky's orbit somehow
assbot: 8 results for 'yudkowsky' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=yudkowsky
asciilifeform: !s yudkowsky
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform "Eliezer Shlomo Yudkowsky (born September 11, 1979[citation needed]) is an American blogger, writer, and advocate for friendly artificial intelligence." << lol i guess tardpedia actually informs, for once.
asciilifeform: herr yudkowsky has quite a bit to answer for, including, iirc, inventing the 'simulation argument' brought up by the dead tattooist.
asciilifeform: ;;later tell mircea_popescu with regard to the 'abuse of statistical devices' outlined in note iii, the accomplished master of the art is a fellow named yudkowsky (search #b-a log). he isn't an idiot, bastard knows exactly what he's doing, and his cult is a veritable vacuum trap for thinking folks ☟︎
asciilifeform: the sad thing is, i'm still fairly certain that yudkowsky didn't want to be a stooge.
asciilifeform: re: elon musk: two thing happening. a fella named yudkowsky has been pushing for 'regulate ai, or it will destroy us all!' line for a little short of a decade now. with him, of course, to be the fuhrer. (see lenat discussion. he considers anyone trying to resurrect lenat's work, assuming it wasn't fraudulent - we don't actually know this - to be a dangerous criminal worthy of extermination.)
moriarty: Yudkowsky is reason enough why formal education makes all the difference in the world
jurov: Comment author: Eliezer_Yudkowsky This is a road that does not lead to Friendly AI, only to AGI. I doubt this has anything to do with Lenat's motives - but I'm glad the source code isn't published and I don't think you'd be doing a service to the human species by trying to reimplement it.
asciilifeform: there was (and is) a fellow by the name of eliezer yudkowsky. (american, oddly enough.) ingenious demented storyteller.
