Hi everyone!

I'm an aspiring rationalist / effective altruist from Israel and a MIRI research associate.

I'm looking for people who would like to have an email correspondence with me, about nothing in particular. The idea is replying with roughly weekly frequency, writing about random thoughts, ideas and recent personal events. Basic information about me + contact details can be found at http://lesswrong.com/user/Squark/.

Yeah. Who's keeping this ship running? (Thanks, BTW, whoever it is)

Paper town just means someone put it on a map, and then it sprung into existence because it was on the map. (Although admittedly the term may specifically refer to its use theft protection for mapmakers...) ;P

I knew about the copyright protection thing. I don't think anyone is going to go after nostalgebrast (Spelling?) for that one. Still it feels like a insult, which rankles my sense of tribal pride (for a largely empty tribe).

Also - are you a actually guest, or someone with the username "Guest". The former seems ... odd, considering how easy account creation is, and my not being aware of any such function, the later, more odd (but funnier).
