Okay, two people got this wrong. So to clarify: I'm no longer accepting
challenges for AI-Box experiments unless someone offers to pay a serious
sum of money. Otherwise it's not worth the clock ticks. However, if
anyone else out there is willing to accept challenges, please go ahead and
take their money. C'mon, show that Eliezer isn't the only one who can do it!
