Title: Some Insights for Quantum Gravity Derived from Work on Causal Sets
Abstract: Drawing on a range of results from the causet program, I try to extract some general lessons that can help guide future work on quantum gravity in general. Some of these insights are of long standing, but some are very recent, notably the indication that an "intermediate nonlocality scale" much greater than the Planck length might be required to make contact with local continuum physics.
