I will / may / should (?) retire from Manifold around the new year. Until then, I’m trying to have fun, learn a few things, and resolve my markets honestly. I make markets on a wide range of topics (philosophy, animals, AI, COVID, hurricane seasons, politics, culture, running, cycling, tennis). I don’t have much patience with fools, poseurs, blowhards, partisan hacks, and generally people who waste my time even more than I’m wasting it myself, so if you have any interest in me staying, don't be that person. But I also appreciate wit, banter, good humor, and anyone who is contributing to making this place enjoyable and fruitful. When I’m using my time meaningfully, I’m either teaching, reading, or writing philosophy, reading other books, listening to music, running, cooking, or spending time with family. All good things that my use of Manifold tends to detract from. YMMV. Bet accordingly.
