“Grateful Dead fans call the beginning of August the Days Between a period bookended by Jerry Garcias birth on Aug. 1, 1942 and his death on Aug. 9, 1995.”
There are thousands of Grateful Dead shows on Archive.org. If you don’t know which ones you’d like to listen to, you might want to look at this guide for a sampling of those considered among the best shows by fans.
Suggestions for improving forecasting and communication about it:
- Use probabilities instead of words to avoid misinterpretation
- Use structured approaches to set probabilities
- Seek feedback to improve your forecasting

Enjoyable comic offering social commentary and life lessons.
The Internet is such a bizarre rabbit burrow of ideas. I came across the term: “Intellectual Dark Web” while skimming a Jacobite article providing an assessment of the “movement”. The article pointed to an aggregating website, which in turn links to guides like, “How to join the Intellectual Dark Web — a user’s guide.”
I suspect this is something that will gain some mindshare. On first blush, it seems like horseshit. But, I thought I’d post a note to look a little deeper later.
Nothing wrong with the wanting a space for the free exchange of ideas, particularly unpopular ones. But, intellectual and dark implies quite a bit more, as if a negative light shines through the ends of the Overton Window.
Sounds like bunkum and flimflam, but even error has its uses.
