This summary is quite useful. Eliezer, it would be very nice if you added forward links to your post. I often find myself wanting to recommend reading a series you've written to a friend, but in order to read it they would need to start at the end and link their way back to the beginning. If a link to follow ups were provided at the top or bottom of prior posts, it would make these a lot easier to follow write on a particular topic, since I could recommend one post and my friend could hopefully figure out the rest.

Yes, thanks for the summary EY! I'm so grateful that you go the lengths to make your work accessible to people who might want some periodic reminders of what you've written about without reading back everything. I feel reminding myself of this stuff tops up and primes rationality when the depression kicks in :)
