Eliezer Yudkowsky has an extremely devoted, almost cult-like following, as does the Less Wrong rationality movement.
But I've never seen an appraisal of him or his work from anyone outside the movement that describes its value or lack thereof. Many of his ideas make sense (if you accept all of his theoretical premises), but I'm not sure they're grounded in reality.
Does anyone here know of such an outside appraisal?
Edit: To be clear, I'm talking about the work that is actually unique to the movement, such as the Overcoming Bias blog and other original stuff. Things like Bayesian reasoning are already proven on their own, but also didn't come from Less Wrong originally.
Please correct spelling Eleizer ->Eliezer
