Crowning Moments of AwesomePersonally, I have nothing against the canonical Harry Potter empire, but I'm hardly a huge fan. I've seen most of the movies on video, and have looked at a few of the books. If Methods of Rationality were just Harry Potter fanfic -- even great fanfic -- then I probably would have no interest in it at all. I don't have time to read half of the published fiction I would like to, and even today, publication on dead trees still tends to screen out some of the worst writing; and published works tend to go through a more thorough reviewing process, allowing the reader to cherrypick the most rewarding reads. Also, I like paper as a medium.
For me, HP and the MOR is not about "Harry Potter," its about the methods of rationality. Actually, that's not quite true. My Harry Potter thinks of himself as Harry James Potter-Evans-Verres. To me, the handsomely-remunerated work by Ms. Rowling may is like the ur-Hamlet. &
Getcher MOR fix right here!Our patron, EY, has forsworn predicted updates because it's work rather than play. I'm sure he's quite right. But my real-world work has slowed a bit ... I hereby pledge to come up with a new MOR deviation at least once a week until EY posts chapter 64 or until February 2011, whichever comes first. My next update will be no later than Wednesday, December 1, at 1900 Pacific.
P.S. Spoke too soon. Work rears its ugly wotsis.
Chapter 63I've been geeking out over this series ever since I found out about it a few months ago. I'll actually be glad to have a break during which there will definitely be no updates. In the meantime, I'll probably put up a new deviation or two. Cheers to you all!
Proposal: The Prison Stanford Experiment.I should write a grant proposal for an experiment in which 75 convicted felons are released from the California prison system and enrolled in a private institution of higher learning located (say) in Palo Alto. Residence in the dorms and everything. Perhaps I would be shocked, shocked at how readily they adapt to the roles they are playing: trying to one-up each other on how qualified they are to be at Stanford, whining about their social lives, and changing their majors repeatedly. Or they might get high, steal stuff, and hurt people.

Thoughts on the real Stanford Prison ExperimentThe official Stanford Prison Experiment site is here: http://www.prisonexp.org/
Imagine, however an alternate reality: The Stanford Graduate School Experiment
Welcome to the Stanford Graduate School Experiment web site, which features information about this classic psychology experiment, including parallels with the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib. What happens when you put good people in an evil place? Does humanity win over evil, or does evil triumph? These are some of the questions we posed in this dramatic simulation of academic life conducted at Stanford University from its founding to the present day.
How we went about testing these questions and what we found may astound you. Our planned four-to-eight year Ph.D program simulation, an investigation into the psychology of academic life, had to be ended prematurely after only six days because of what the situation was doing to the graduate students who participated. In only a few days, our "professors" bec
