Astral Codex Ten mentions this Question


Following his public re-entry to the web, blogger Scott Alexander has started a routine series of posts he calls "Metaculus Monday". He's taken the first two of these to review Metaculus on the near future of COVID-19, and longer-term futures of Artificial Intelligence. Perhaps a future post will mention this question!

Will this question be mentioned in an Astral Codex Ten Post in 2021?

This question resolves positively if either:

  • the title or question text of this question is mentioned
  • the URL of this question is included the text of an Astral Codex Ten post.

A substack comment will not suffice for a positive resolution, even if that comment is authored by Scott Alexander.

If the question title or text is present but obscured (such as being incorrectly transcribed), this is sufficient to resolve positively.

It does not need to be a "Metaculus Monday" post: any post on Astral Codex Ten in 2021 may include positively-resolving content.
