As our social influence and membership on planksip.org grow, we are continuing to broaden our voice with a variety of writers and content creators.
We are looking for writers with a proclivity towards climate change, animal welfare, social injustice and community as a whole.
The starting point for our media outlet is, broadly speaking, on philosophy and culture, the wellspring for which is deep for the right person to develop their writer's voice on a wide social canvas. The narratives we curate are intended to be impactful and should signal justified truth, discovery with a willingness to understand multiple perspectives.
The right individual will be an autonomous individual, self-driven and innately motivated to enhance their learning journey. This may should cliché but a learning focus is a meridian that makes all of us humble and open to other counterfactuals of reasoning. Will you be best known for championing the probabilistic approach to artificial intelligence and the development of Bayesian networks? Could you possibly elaborate on a theory of causal and counterfactual inference based on structural models? How about empathy models of forgiveness and consideration of consciousness in other living entities. Are you politically neutral or indifferent? How would you articulate the difference between the two?
planksip will grow as a brand for thought leaders, making you (if you accept this call to action), a brand in itself for your success will manifest in the success of planksip as an entity. Are you up to the challenge?
