Now I'm so interested in whether there are any autistic people who use LLMs to help with that. I wish I could ask Aella, she would totally not be offended.

I think the right move is to wait a few days and then bring it up in an indirect way

So I had this short back and forth with a somewhat autistic internet friend and then kept thinking about whether or not it's appropriate/polite to inform them of the social subtext that they clearly missed. But I think there's just no way to do it that doesn't come across as combative

Of course this leads to people not getting training data for social stuff

maybe the better answer would be that you totally can because they wouldn't be offended because they're autistic, but idk if it works like that

I'd say the help is way more valuable than the criticism is unpleasant.

This take from Katja Grace on why there is evil in the world is pretty autistic hilarious
It's pretty funny but ultimately incongruous with Christianity as a whole. After all, the whole premise of Christianity is that a better state of being is possible if you're a good enough Christian.

You can tell that people are autistic but not very smart when they keep using fancy words but incorrectly. I'm guessing this is because they have a better than average ability to remember words they've heard only a few times, but they lack the ability to read social contexts sufficiently to figure out what the words meant.

I have the impression that if an individual utilizes sophisticated language in a context where it is unexpected, this behavior will correlate positively with  autism on their end, even if the language they've utilized didn't contain improperly utilized terms.

It is mildly annoying to have to remember one version of the "which one out of affect and effect was the verb again" thing for most conversations and a different version to get the ErrinF quote right. A few times, I have accidentally remembered the ErrinF version in normal conversations.

Orion and the Dark (2024)

This is a kids movie on Netflix. I watched it because Charlie Kaufman wrote the script. Maybe. Sort of. Like he wrote a prior version.

It's a weird one because it clearly has his style at parts, but then other parts, not so. It definitely has more of him in it than Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, but doesn't compare well to any of the movies that he legitimately wrote. It kinda falls apart in the second half. It gets very meta but not in as smart of a way as it should. Some parts are very funny though and were definitely his idea.

Easy 10/10 when we go by kids movies standards. Like a way more interesting and less predictable plot than the usual. But we don't, so I think 7/10 is about right.

Luckily it's not a big deal since you can just click them away, but I do wonder who wants this.

I feel like he falls into a similar trap to what he is describing by going for a clickbaity title and framing. Ranked choice voting is neat and all. Is it going to fix US politics? No way.

I wish he didn't refer to stuff as math that's just citing statistics. If you're discussing ranked choice voting and bring in math, I expect at least Arrow's theorem.

Can't disagree with that.

One thing that's always bothered me is that the smart people I'm listening to tend to think that Ranked Choice is one of the worst alternatives to FPTP, although still better. I've never heard Andrew talk about Ranked Choice vs. other alternatives. Approval voting is super simple, for example, and I think is supposed to be better

But it still seems like a worthwhile project despite all that, so eh

What's bad about ranked choice?

I don't actually know any of the technical arguments, that's why I formulated it like I did. The claim was that it's more susceptible to strategic voting that leads to bad outcomes than Approval voting.
