The website you're currently using is powered by ForumMagnum. But what really is ForumMagnum? What is it for, and why was it designed this way? In this post, I cast ForumMagnum as a medium for building communities of inquiry. I show how ForumMagnum is designed to build norms like rationality and long-form. Lastly, I suggest how the ForumMagnum developers could use the body of CoI research to guide their future product design.
I wrote this post, and posted it to LessWrong. But I'm link-posting it on the EA Forum because I believe most ForumMagnum development is done by CEA, and most developers are on this forum.
