A Biosecurity and Biorisk Reading+ List

I'm currently putting the reading list into this Google Sheet, which may be more user friendly as it allows you to track your progress, filter out recommendations that haven't been vetted (as indicated by a lack of bold or asterix), etc. Thanks so much for compiling this list!

EA Online Learning Buddy Platform

Will keep an eye out for future posts! :)

EA Online Learning Buddy Platform

Bring on the MVP - I've been meaning to investigate finding an EA accountability buddy, this sounds like a great platform for it. Maybe we could create a list of interested people to start doing these buddy meetings

You may have already considered this, but how about setting up an EA group in MooCLab?https://www.mooclab.club/groups/

Why You Should Consider Skilled Volunteering

I don't know if there are any Skilled Volunteering portals for other cause areas, but I'd love to see them! 

Free 1:1 Learning Coaching!

Although saying that: I have just discovered this learning coach who recommends some beyond-anki paradigms, which I'm very  interested to try out!

Free 1:1 Learning Coaching!

Hey Yonatan, cheers for the feedback! If you haven't already then key ideas guide 2 sums up my rebuttals to the "anki is just for facts" view. Definitely agree that I'm only coaching on computer-based learning (Anki + Obsidian mostly), but would argue that as Anki uses the best techniques for learning (spaced repetition, active recall, active encoding), it's fair for me to advertise this as learning coaching. The aim is effective learning, the tool is Anki (+ Obsidian if people are interested!). There are things like experiential learning and generative learning that I won't be covering, but I don't claim to be  a one-stop shop for all learning methods

Learning, Knowledge, Intelligence, Mastery, Anki - TYHTL post 2

Ah you're right actually, think I've stupidly been using "open source" as a synonym for free / non-proprietary. My point was that unlike Roam your notes aren't locked away in their system. Cheers for pointing out my mistake!! 

Open call for EAs with passion for meta-learning <3

Amazing, thanks for the comment! I'm definitely aiming to do some more foundational EA texts soon so keep an eye on the forum / subscribe to the newsletter on the website for updates :) Just time constrained currently!

A Case for Better Feeds

Wow, this website looks like a great resource, will definitely be returning to it!!

One thing to note is that a search bar would be really handy, and maybe an option to filter by date etc. And perhaps a really quick about page.

The method that can “prove” almost anything: A TED-Ed Lesson

Really enjoyed this video, explained the concept really well (as you'd expect with TED) - great work! 

Am I right that in the final part of the video when you reference the wider issues in science right now, this relates in part to the replication crisis, and maybe the idea of meta-science that I've seen floating around? Definitely want to read into this more, seems like a really interesting field/ movement.
