There seems to be a depth limit on replies: too bad.

Also, I wonder if there is a provision (perhaps in a "preferences" section I don't know about) to have an email sent when someone replies (this is a very limited format for an open-ended exchange ...)

It's an old pg trick to put a speed bump on flamewars (edit: the 'reply' link does show up after a few minutes), but you can get around it by clicking the timestamp of the comment you want to reply to.

I've relaxed the depth limit a notch, too.


Thanks!

Also do you have a favorite piece of software?


Thanks very much!

Good question, but I don't have a good answer (perhaps too much of an idealist ...)


No problem.

You should setup a Twitter or a blog or something. But I'm sure I'm not the first person to suggest this. Or even better write a book.


Ars longa, vita brevis. I don't have time to do justice to the top three things I'm trying to do.


Haha, I figured you probably weren't bored.

On some level though I think that making more people acquainted with what you are working on might be beneficial to making progress.

I cannot not ask what those top three things are :-). I'm pretty familiar with your work but I'm not sure what the top three things are.


One of them is quite a bit of interesting work and play with Sam Altman and his new YC Research initiatives. A recent one is: https://blog.ycombinator.com/harc

they being?


See above for one of them.


It's not a depth limit. Rather, mods noticed that many deep threads were flame wars, and implemented a short delay before you can post in deep threads. At least, that's my understanding.

To see replies, click on "Threads" at the top of the page. I don't know if there is any standard way of getting an email notification.
