I want my private knowledge to be public.

Blog format is unsuitable, because most content is timeless, rather than timely, and primary organization should be hierarchical and tag-based, not date-based. Thus, knowledge.

I believe that humanity advances by compressing knowledge.

Read research papers instead of figuring everything out by yourself. Even better, read textbooks instead of research papers.

Think from the first principles, but be unapologetic about using abstractions and known results, as the frontier of the unknown is almost boundless.

This page is my attempt at living by my values.

I'm inspired by Gwern, Michael Karpeles, and Spencer Greenberg.
