Where have all the good lists gone? Or, rather, the good list-maintainers.
I'm specifically thinking about the lists linked under "Take Action" on effectivealtruism.org. It seems like a lot of the links are dead or haven't been updated in several years. For example, in the action article "Build lists of useful people, organizations, and resources", the spreadsheet of high-potential technology orgs hasn't been maintained for nearly five years.
This isn't to call anyone out - databases and lists are hard to maintain, and we're all really. really. busy. I'm also a little concerned that a lot of the links in the 'take action' section seem to link to forum posts that are also several years old. It might be good to migrate/merge some of these forum posts into sub-articles on effectivealtruism.org - for conciseness and future update-ability?
It might make sense to have a central List of Lists and a head List Librarian, or something like that, to make sure that things like lists of project ideas and lists of funding opportunities are updated regularly and are still accurate and available.
I'm working on a release strategy for a video series focused on high-impact self-started projects during COVID-19. Part of that release strategy includes a list of things that people can do to contribute their skills toward big global issues. I'm doing some of this work on my own, but it's pretty time-consuming, and I figured someone has a more up-to-date/comprehensive list of project ideas, grants, volunteer opportunities, et cetera.
(After jotting this post down, I'm really sick of the word 'list'.)
