Thank you so much! I haven't gotten any serious negative feedback from lefties for the EA stuff so far, though an e/acc on Twitter mentioned it haha

Maybe I wasn't clear enough in the writing, but I make basically the same point about the desirability of a slow takeoff in the piece.

This approach appears to directly contradict Altman's blogpost from less than a year ago arguing for short timelines + slow takeoff because of less compute overhang. I wrote more on this here.

I'm exploring adding transcripts, and would do this one retroactively. 

Good to know RE YouTube. I haven't uploaded there before (it's outside of the RSS workflow and I'm not sure how much it would expand reach), but seeing comments like this is helpful info.
