Office Hours is an hour long Zoom call we have on Friday’s from 2-3pm ET. The event is exclusive to Epsilon Theory members and is a great way to hear Ben’s thoughts on markets, politics, and current events. Every Monday I post a brief recap of the previous OH. This is not a transcription of the call and doesn’t cover everything. But it does outline the main conversations we had.
Before this was posted on the ET Forum, but we’re moving it to the front page so more people can see the recap and understand the opportunities of Office Hours.
These are the major topics and ideas we discussed during the 03/03/2023 Office Hours as well as some of the biggest takeaways. If you have something you want to add to the conversation, let us know in the comments and join us next time.
Don’t forget to save a spot for our in person conference happening this summer. Check out the website to learn more and sign up! All ET Premium and Professional subscribers will have access to priority registration once they fill out the form. If you have any questions or want to update your information, email me at [email protected] or [email protected].
After a two week hiatus Office Hours was back with a bang! We started off by talking about Rusty’s amazing new note Noseblind. This started our conversation about the half life of narratives. What makes some narratives stick around when others disappear immediately? Some of these blink and you’ll miss it narratives are really important and still happening even if no one’s talking about it. It’s amazing, and fascinating, and horrifying.
AI R Us:
The other great note to come out during our hiatus was Ben’s AI R Us. This note has sparked some really interesting conversations on the forum that you need to check out. ChatGPT and AI has been a fascination of Ben’s for awhile. What are the key differences between artificial and biological intelligence? For someone already worried about the weaponization of words, this is something keeping Ben up at night.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on these ideas and hope that you’ll join us next time. If you haven’t already, sign up to access the Forum and Office Hours.
