What does "rationality materials" mean?

I'd love to see this page discuss more than the sequences. The sequences are awesome, but some LW heroes have started sharing exercises that move us from a site on which you can read about stuff you really should keep in mind (in ways a number of studies have shown you probably won't actually keep in mind) to practical exercises that might actually change the way you behave. I'd love this page to give those exercises (example: the sunk costs kata mentioned here, and others under development (perhaps here when they're made available?)) more attention.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will definitely start working on that! At the moment I'm working on collecting important non-sequence posts; after that I'll move onto exercises and meetup materials. --Tetronian 20:44, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Please do consider progressive enhancement - if you make the page serviceable and better than the current link we can link it, and you can keep adding more awesome over time. While you still have your scaffolding up we can't use the page.

Good point. I'll try to turn it into something usable in the next day or so. Tetronian 01:55, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
