A blog/newsletter revolving around how to accelerate progress in science & technology (progress studies), technological forecasting, FDA reform, Effective Altruism, and artificial intelligence.

There may be occasional “oddball” posts as I go down rabbit holes on random topics.

My goal is to average 1 post every 2 weeks.

The name “More is Different” comes from the title of an 1972 article in Science by the condensed matter physicist and Nobel laureate Philip W. Anderson. His article discusses emergence and the hierarchical nature of science (physics gives rise to chemistry, chemistry gives rise to biology, etc).

All my older writings, going back many years, can be found here:
