protect your brain

Reading a tweet is a bit like downloading an (attacker-controlled) executable that you instantly run on your brain. Each one elicits emotions, suggests knowledge, nudges world-view.

In the future it might feel surprising that we allowed direct, untrusted information to brain.

Andrej Karpathy tweeted about the dangers of reading tweets. It's a good reminder that we should be careful about what we let into our brains.

A goal for comind is to make it easier to think critically about the information we consume. I want to provide an easy way to contextualize what you're looking at, and to make sure that we show you only what is meaningful, informative, and helpful.
