Comment by Luca Parodi on Book Review Review (end of the bounty program) · 2021-10-15T09:50:40.029Z · LW · GW

Personal feedback. I think that, as for a lot of people, the discovery of LW radically changed my perspective about a lot of things. I may probably say that has been one of the most important intellectual mind-shifting events that happened in my entire life. But, given the language barrier (I am Italian and I learned English from scratch late in my life) and the high quality of the content here in LW, I've always been intimidated about writing something here, since I discovered the forum in 2017. It may sound superficial (is it?) but yes, the bounty program motivated me a lot about pushing myself outside the confort zone, and I learned a lot of things in the process. So thank you for the initiative, and I really hope this will be just the beginning of a personal journey here.
