They often say that newcomers can quickly spot the unique characteristics of a new environment—whether it's a company, a club, or a community—before gradually blending into its culture. That was certainly my experience when I joined Manifold about six months ago.

Upon arrival, expecting to find predictions on various public concerns, I was immediately struck by the numerous discussions and markets focusing on specific individuals—three utterly unknown to me and one I believed had long since passed away.

Bewildered by this intense fascination, I created a poll to see which of these four individuals captivated your attention the most. It's now clear: Eliezer Yudkowsky is Manifold's biggest darling. When you meet in person, consider offering him a beer or a coffee as a token of your interest!

As I've become more familiar with these unique community fixations, I'm handing over the baton for the next Manifold favorites poll to anyone eager to continue this tradition.

Thank you to all the participants! 🙏

That's mira

Who is Mira (Murati?)?

@ivur I only know Jimmy Carter, maybe someone else can help. I'm new.

@GazDownright Eliezer is a guy who has written great books on rationality, went on to work of ai safety and has become an outspoken ai doomer.

Destiny I'm pretty sure is a fast talking political thinker (liberal) who has a following.

@ivur Not sure who that is, but their names sounds cool so I'm going to vote for them.
