You could consider adding clams to your diet. Clams, oysters and mussels are all very high in iron, but clams have the most and, if I’m not mistaken, the best (though probably not conclusive) evidence that they don’t feel pain (you’ll want to read up on it and make your own decision as it’s been a long time since I read about it and I don’t remember many details).

I was rejected for blood donation because of low hemoglobin levels. I was worried about messing up the iron supplementation (too much is very bad apparently), so I ate tinned clams once or twice a week and the next time I was well over the minimum.

I should probably add that I’m not vegan and my mom also has low hemoglobin so it could be more of a hereditary thing for me. I also only did this once, but couldn’t manage to keep eating them very often after that and haven’t donated blood in a while. It’s something that would be pretty easy to try out though.

Can you elaborate on how the writeup is outdated? 

What is the best way for an individual to fund you?

I’m pretty convinced. Has anyone written about how to find these types of opportunities?

I like Jacob’s advice over at Put a Num on It from a few years ago. robo-investing, diversified internationally. Not keeping much beyond what you need for bills in cash. https://putanumonit.com/2017/02/10/get-rich-slowly/

Zvi does a pretty in-depth AI news round up every week or two now, plus some individual posts on AI topics. Not exclusively about safety, but often gives his own safety-informed perspective on capabilities news, etc. https://thezvi.substack.com/

Great thank you. Late to the party, but by less than a month :).

If you like, I have some extra bandwidth this week and could transcribe some of them.

Agreed. Worth looking into alternatives that would be good for everyone.

Low hanging fruit sounds like a good alternative :p now I’m picturing the minks chilling under a bunch of trees, picking and ‘til they get their fill. Sadly, that’s very far from the situation…

Is the hypothesis that the minks are more likely to have caught it from encounters with wild birds, than the raw poultry that you mention they were fed on?

Perhaps a ban on feeding them poultry would be tractable/helpful if not?
