For those of you who haven’t seen, there’s a new version of effectivealtruism.org up. The previous version was good as a first pass but we hadn't invested a lot of time in it so there wasn't much content. This is the first thing that comes up when people google ‘effective altruism’ so we think it’s pretty important for it to provide a more comprehensive overview of EA and represent the community well.
We’ll be launching the new site at EA Global this evening so if you’re reading this you’re ahead of the curve.
At the moment, the new website's primarily targeted at people relatively new to EA, so most of the content is introductory. We’re planning to iterate on the design and include more advanced material in future.
But there are some pretty cool things you might want to check out:
1) An interactive cause prioritization tool. It’s based off the GPP flowchart with some tweaks. The tool is in Beta at the moment so we’d welcome any feedback. If you want to sign up as a Beta tester you can here. Or just leave feedback in the integrated form.
2) A long read introducing effective altruism.
3) Brief responses to some of the most common questions / objection with links to more reading.
4) Links to the best introductory material on EA.
We plan to invest substantially more time in this site, to make it a real hub for the community. It'd be great to hear what people think, either in the comments here or in the feedback section on the website.
