This site, “On Deciding . . . Better” began as one of the first weblogs hosted by Dave Winer when he opened up the web to writers with the EditThisPage community in December of 1999. While the site has served as an online technology journal, it has focused variously on decision theory, systems theory and emergent phenomena in an informal setting. More recently, digital photogaphy equipment and technique has dominated the subject matter, reflecting personal interests.
Recent months have seen a return to discussions of decision making, focusing on new ideas in the philosophy of mind.
