Greetings, everyone.

My name is Francisco, and I am from Malaga, Spain. I am a dabbling rationalist, and a programmer/troubleshooter.

I started walking the path of rationality when I started keeping track of good luck/normal luck/bad luck events in order to check if Murphy's law was actually true, and then wondering why people actually believed in it. Later, I started reading about fallacies, and I finally arrived at LW via HMPOR, like many people.

I am currently reading my way through the Sequences, but my current project is to make Bayes' theorem more accessible to people without math backgrounds. I have a couple of ideas that I'd like to refine and share at this community, even if English is my second language.

Good for you! Having English as your second language may actually make you better suited to explaining Bayes' Theorem and discussing rationality in general.
