What's an Arun Jose?
Hello there. I'm Arun Jose.
I like making things, and I make whatever I think would be good, regardless of domain - I sometimes develop websites and apps, research things that seem interesting, write about whatever I want, and draw on the rare occasions I remember to.
I sometimes go by the mononym Jozdien. Don't ask me what that means, because I don't know either.
I want to try to solve the most important problems in the known universe - why aim small, right? - which I think is AI Alignment in this phase of human history.
I'm an aspiring rationalist, which means I try to think about how I think.
I enjoy all genres of fiction when done well, but my favourites are rational fiction and meta/absurd comedy (as well as crack fanfiction, which feels appropriate closed off in brackets).
Instagram and Email are my most frequented platforms for messages, so if you have ideas, want to collaborate, or just think I'd find something interesting (I probably will - err on the side of messaging me), just send me a message with the phrase "Xavier Avial".
