A new episode of my , the short story "Sort By Controversial".

"Reddit has a feature where you can sort posts by controversial. Controversy sells, so we trained our network to predict this... The Japanese tested their bioweapons on Chinese prisoners. We were either nicer or dumber than they were, because we tested Shiri’s Scissor on ourselves."

This is a short story narrated by Matt Arnold with the permission of the author, Scott Alexander.
