If what you're trying to say fits as a comment to one of the articles, please leave it there. History shows a response will almost always be forthcoming the same day.

Otherwise, join #trilema on Freenode, ask someone already voiced for voice and state your concern in the channel. If you don't have an irc client, here's a web-based solution. In general you'll have an answer within a few hours.

Please note that I don't entertain private communications from unknown parties, irrespective of any delusions of self importance they may harbor. Outside of personal recommendation from people already in my WoT, the above are absolutely the only avenues available to you.

    i've been hooked on your writing here for months now, and despite having the misfortune of being born an ESL, reading your work has improved my life in many small ways by shifting how i view our culture, myself and others. but no one cares, so lets get to the question.

    i'm running out of articles written in english here. i'm looking for more of your work, as ive gone through everying in english many times...understanding some of it. it challenges you to understand...which is rare.

    I assume there are no translations of the earlier writings in english and that much would be lost in translation in any case. i need to find equally intelligent authors. ideally those of similar ideals, and those with a similar style and mindset.

    trilema has lead me to nassim taleb, but since i do not know HOW to search to search for such, im finding it difficult to learn where to search for such. in other words im asking for reccomendations from the only source i can trust at this point. authors you respect and value. essays, books, etc...

    i understand your time is valuable and that im asking for a rather large favor, but i might as well ask. i'd be appreciative for even the smallest list of books, or advice. thank you for your time either way.

    You've seriously read all the English articles ? How long did it take you ?

    Also, there's of course the log of The Most Serene Republic, have you read that ? There's often links posted there, many times to valued material (Naggum, Schwartz, TLP among others). Read that too ?

  3. The log is much hairier to read, I've tried and failed. Something to do with how the topic of the conversation is constantly changing, and how people type

    an idea

    over several short

    lines

    and it's incredibly annoying to try

    another party: hi!!! im boxxy

    and decipher what they're saying.

    By comparison, reading Trilema is/ was a breeze.

    > and how people type

    Well in fairness that only really started recently in any sort of volume (and meanwhile I put an end to it anyway).

    > much hairier to read

    That's true, though, in the general, conversation is more fluid and there's somewhat higher intellectual stakes to follow the log than to follow the blog, as people don't take the time to do my multi-paragraph introductions to topics. If they do it's a line called likbez and postscripted, not really the same thing at all.

  5. @branden smith: if taleb is the single name that comes up when considering where trilema led you, you haven't been following all the links. To the log, offsite, all of 'em. I imagine ~lifetimes could be spent going through the maze (and no, I don't think there are transmissible shortcuts).

    @alex: flexibility's a great thing to acquire, and afaik nobody tore their crotch (yet?) from stretching with the logs.
