I have lots of posts! You have limited time! Here are many of my recent posts, organized somewhat thematically.
The ones in bold are ones I think are particularly good.
In mid-2020 I discovered/invented a framework for robust trust-building (and repairing) that I call the Non-Naive Trust Dance. Conveying it to the world is likely to be my life’s work, and I’m just getting started. Here’s an in-progress collection of posts conveying it. I was going to call them a sequence but nearly all posts below can function as an introduction, each from a different angle. Not all of them name the framework explicitly though.
I have many other articles I intend to write on the topic—if you’d like to request I zoom in on one of them in particular, you can view a list of them here. Then ask me about it on twitter at @Malcolm_Ocean.
I’ve also been doing some podcast appearances, most of which discuss the NNTD or related topics.
If you apply the NNTD framework to partswork, you get something called Internal Trust Dancing.
Structurally learning how to orient from a place beyond regret has been a major theme for me over the past year or two. Here are some posts about it:
At the end of each calendar year, I write a long post on how that year went. I largely do it for my own sake, but other people have told me that they’re interesting, inspiring, or otherwise worth reading.
I really like sharing structures of thought. Here are some of my favorites: (most of which were primarily created or fleshed out by me)
Somehow these fairly-independent themes seem to come up together for me.
I’m part of a project to design a new kind of culture. These posts, particularly the second one, point at what it is we’re doing.
These posts talk about how to change patterns of thought, which is a core component of the kind of culture-shifting I mentioned above.
I like feedback! I write about it. You tell me what you think of my posts on feedback 😉
Things I realized while relating to strangers on the street (in both cases in San Francisco).
I’ve experimented with sleep a bunch. The crazy polyphasic schedules had mixed results for me, but I’ve now been sleeping biphasically pretty consistently for over 3 years—6h or so at night and a 20min nap midday. Learning to REM-nap was totally worth weeks of sleep deprivation.
There will be more of these soon I promise.
No plans for any more of this anytime soon.
