Volume 3: What is LobbySeven


A Mathematician's Apology

"The road to hell is paved with good intentions" - Samuel Johnson

I’m sorry for writing this.

I’m sorry that writing it carries an implication that you might want to read it.

But, if this is to eventually become a successful endeavor, eventually it must pass into the hands of people who haven’t known me personally for a decade or more. Those people likely want to know where I’m coming from.

We all have cognitive bias. What we say and think is determined by our view of the world. Show me somebody who claims to communicate without bias, and I’ll show you a liar. The best we can hope for is to understand who is passing us information and why. For those of you who don’t know me, hopefully this note – which I will try to keep mercifully short – will help you to see the biases in my writing. Then, you are free to incorporate it into your world view, forming part of the bias of your own communication.

  • Who are you? What is LobbySeven?

  • What cognitive biases are you preemptively declaring?
