    • I went to school for linguistics and cognitive science back in the day, and I do likes me some Pinker -- the guy speaks casually in well-structured paragraphs. He's a very clear thinker. WRT potential AI dangers, though, what I've heard from him in the past bordered on merely an argument from incredulity, and I was not particularly impressed. Will have to give this a watch.

    • By all means, do watch it. Pinker sometimes seems pathologically optimistic to me, but more often than not he can back up his claims with evidence.
