Large EA House in Berkeley is looking for new housemates

Hi Larks!

Thanks for asking!

We have been very careful since the beginning of the epidemics and were effectively in quarantine before the Bay Area shelter-in-place.

Currently, everyone stays and works from home. We maintain the food stockpile via grocery deliveries or having one person going to Trader Joes' every two weeks (with a mask and gloves). We have occasional walks/runs (while keeping a safety distance with other people).

If the Bay Area gets 50,000 reported cases or 500 such cases in Berkeley, we will stop walking outside.

We have copper-tapped common-used surfaces in the house and have a lot of resources to live comfortably in total isolation for over one month.

When people will move in, we will probably implement a quarantine for themselves for a few days/weeks.

Thanks Ben! I've edited the message to have only one question per post. :-)

Do you think that climate change has been neglected in the EA movement? What are some options that seem great to you at the moment to have a very large impact to stir us in a better direction regarding climate change?

What are some directions you'd like the EA movement or some parts of the EA movement to take?

What are some of your current challenges? (maybe someone in the audience can help!)

If you've read the book 'So good they can't ignore you', what do you think are the most important skills to master to be a writer/philosopher like yourself?

What are you looking for in a research / operations colleague?

Hi Tobby! Thanks for being such a great source of inspiration for philosophy and EA. You're a great model to me!

Some questions, feel free to pick:

1) What philosophers are your sources of inspiration and why?

(put my other questions in separate comments). Also, writing "Toby"!
