Trying to get back into blogging more / open thread

Hey everybody, lately I’ve been busy getting ready to go to App Academy in San Francisco in November, and generally not finding much energy for blogging. But I still have a TON of posts I want to write, some about religion, quite a few about AI-related issues, and at least one about superheros. I’m going to try to force myself to write a bunch of them over the next week. Until then, consider this an open thread (post requests welcome).

Effective Altruism and feminism
Self-interested activism and gay rights
Historical thinkers on human misery
How bad is life at subsistence?
