The FTX crash raised a lot of questions in and outside the EA community.
For many people, it was the first they heard about Effective Altruism. Not a great first impression. It probably didn't motivate many newbies to get involved.
But is that really important? Don't get me wrong what SBF and others did was bad. But is it important to have a good public persona? Does it matter what we look like to "outsiders" if we know are honestly working towards effectively making the world a better place?
