About

Don’t Worry About the Vase is a blog about topics that interest me and I consider worthy of more attention rather than less attention. Things that don’t deserve attention don’t get attention, even if something is wrong on the internet. Frequent topics include gaming, including Magic: The Gathering and Artifact, game design, game theory, rationality, immodesty, philosophy, economics and trading, life optimization and more.

The author, Zvi Mowshowitz is a member of the Magic: The Gathering Hall of Fame and has written extensively about the game and its strategies. He’s been heavily involved with rationality for a long time. He’s also been a professional trader and market maker, in both traditional and non-traditional markets, and was CEO of the personalized medical startup MetaMed.

Posts on this site are automatically also published at Less Wrong, where additional good comments are often found, but it is preferred when possible that you comment here. Comment engagement by the author will be much stronger here than in republished copies.

Posts on this site may be freely republished on other sites, provided such articles are not behind a paywall of any kind, authorship is clearly acknowledged and a link back to the original post is provided.

For the best past articles on this site that are not gaming related, see Best of Don’t Worry About the Vase. Intention is to update this periodically. A game related version is owed at some point soon, as the focus shifts more into that space.

    Hey you might want to put something here. Also a “Best of” list for new readers would be great if you’re willing to do that.

    i hate it when people put an about us section. I also hate innocuous trolling. They’re both terrible and should be eradicated for the good of the androgynous mother/father land.

    Where does the blog name come from? It made me think of the vase in the very old text game Adventure.
