I predict that the Center for Applied Rationality of 2019 and 2020 and beyond will be not-at-all "Duncan shaped." 2019-05-12 Duncan Sabien Center for Applied Rationality Duncan Sabien, Timothy Telleen-Lawton, Anna Salamon, Kenzi Ashkie Employee departure Rationality improvement Duncan Sabien played a key role at the Center for Applied Rationality in conducting workshops and shaping the curriculum till his departure in late 2018 and the complete ending of his work with CFAR in April 2019 [9] He explains that he believes that the new CFAR, under Tim Telleen-Lawton, will be quite different fom the CFAR where Duncan played a key role, partly due to a deliberate attempt by Tim to explore new directions. He also mentions the limited amount of knowledge transfer time (10 hours) from him to the new team, as well as the departure of Val and Anna Salamon switching to part-time.
