If you're a writer, journalist, YouTuber, video editor, graphic design artist, digital marketeer or just have a skill/interest that falls under communications: Welcome to this Effective Altruist slack channel! How do you get in?
Just send me a personal message here on the forum and introduce yourself. I won't be strict at all with accepting people. One sentence is enough.
Please don't use the comment section for this as I see the comments less frequently than I see personal messages.
Michael Aird initially created this slack channel. Since I had a very similar idea around the same time, he's letting me do the moderation and others are helping out as well. At the moment of writing this (22/6/2022), there are 426 members.
Also, if you're a creative or communicator within EA, it would be cool if you could fill in this form.
I believe this slack channel could be very beneficial in increasing the impact of all EA creatives/communicators. I see three main ways in how it could help with this:
- Coordination: Ex. making sure two YouTubers don't make very similar videos at the same time, maybe one specific blog could be better at tackling a certain subject than another blog, avoiding that two podcasts interview the same person with similar questions,...
- Collaboration: Maybe someone is willing to write/host a video for someone else, maybe there is an expert that could help out with a blog post, maybe two ideal podcast partners can find each other,...
- Feedback/advice: All of us have different perspectives we can bring to the table, even if some of us have studied similar things. Learning from each other and giving each other tips is a great way to get better at communicating!
