Doing stuff @ Effective Altruism Israel

Hey! I'm Edo, married + 2 cats, I live in Tel-Aviv, Israel, and I feel weird writing about myself so I go meta.

I'm a mathematician, I love solving problems and helping people. My LinkedIn profile has some more stuff.

I'm a forum moderator, which mostly means that I care about this forum and about you! So let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

I'm currently working full-time at EA Israel, doing independent research and project management. Currently mostly working on evaluating the impact of for-profit tech companies, but I have many projects and this changes rapidly.

I'm really interested in the answer to this question and happy to say that publicly

I find it's good enough for me, but I haven't deeply engaged with really complicated texts

Interesting idea! Seems like locusts are halal (same as in Judaism), but that may not be relevant. 

Also found this - https://seekersguidance.org/answers/hanafi-fiqh/are-chickens-who-mostly-feed-on-impurities-like-ants-worms-and-insects-impermissible/

Great idea! 

If it'd be helpful, I ran a 4 session workshop for people in my local community on "EA research methods": https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VQfVbZSZow_Oq24cnRQpFzykHzIdcG8Jmjx6ctRFxRg/edit#heading=h.e6lzi7r45ez

I'm not sure either - there's some bug and I didn't manage to delete them. I've moved them to personal blog post and I'm alerting the technical team 

So sad that this happens to you again :( 

Thanks for taking the safety measures!

Not run in any way by EA Israel. In fact, I don't think we even have a particularly strong connection.

Re your draft, I'd be interested in taking a look :) 

I thought you've written something similar here - https://globalprioritiesproject.org/2015/02/project-overview-problems-of-unknown-difficulty/ (website is currently down 🐛 - archived version)
