Less Wrong is a community blog devoted to refining the art of human rationality. Please visit our About page for more information.
I finished creating the 2012 edition of the Best of Rationality Quotes collection. (Here is last year's.)
The page was built by a short script (source code here) from all the LW Rationality Quotes threads so far. (We had such a thread each month since April 2009.) The script collects all comments with karma score 10 or more, and sorts them by score. Replies are not collected, only top-level comments.
As is now usual, I provide various statistics and top-lists based on the data. (Source code for these is also at the above link, see the README.) I added these as comments to the post:
- Top quote contributors by total karma score collected
- Top quote contributors by karma score collected in 2012
- Top quote contributors by statistical significance level (See this comment for a description of this metric.)
- Top original authors by number of quotes
- Top original authors by total karma score collected
