Anti-interesting, adj.: A subject is said to be anti-interesting if it is absolutely fascinating to the point where there is a strong market for its investigation but it threatens an institution capable of stifling discussion inside the Gated Institutional Narrative (GIN).
- Eric Weinstein on Twitter
Something is anti-interesting when it is newsworthy in the extreme and fascinating to consumers of news but the editors show a preternatural disinterest in covering it. “The world has moved on.” “Nobody knows who these people are.” “There’s not enough here.” “Tin Foil Hat story.” via Twitter
