02: Dr. Daniel Reeves of Beeminder

My guest is Dr. Daniel Reeves of Beeminder, a web service that helps you stick to your goals.

In this 11-minute discussion, Daniel talks about:
  • How Beeminder works to help you stay focused on your goals,
  • Working with  other LessWrongers  at the startup,
  • The value, or lack thereof, in getting a PhD; his was in Algorithmic Game Theory, which he links to Beeminder, and 
  • Dogfooding their own product at Beeminder.

Daniel mentioned "Level 1" and "Level 2" actions, those that give value in their own right as oppose to those that make you effective: Here's the relevant post.
