This is the root note of a (mostly) tree-shaped document which contains my work at Refine, an incubator for conceptual research on alignment hosted by Conjecture. I'm using this fellowship as an opportunity to explore several prosaic themes which I currently find promising, and get better at the poking process itself.
Reading all depth-one theme notes should take you around five minutes — a deliberate design choice to help you get a quick sense of what this is all about. Afterwards, I recommend switching to a depth-first traversal on whatever branch you find interesting.
I'd find it extremely helpful to hear any targeted feedback you might have via the note-linked comment threads. If possible, consider phrasing it as leading questions which I can then turn into new branches from the note you're commenting on. Best viewed on desktop.
