- 2Blog entry. The Amanuensis is here judging more deeply than I would. Or differently. While I choose articles based on whether the headline piques an interest educated by reading full articles, the Amanuensis first reads the article, then decides whether its suited. In some ways, it would be more “accurate” to let it decide based only on the headline and introduction. But that kind of accuracy is not necessarily what we want here.
