Great piece, Ben.

That would be really cool to see, Dave! I’ve always felt that intelligence has a lot more to do with the ability to recognize patterns, to adapt in novel situations, and to find clever ways to respond in situations where one doesn’t have much specific info. This plays out in so many ways — in physical activity, in creative work, in learning new languages… — but I really think those abilities have much more to do with intelligence than memorization does.
