Effective altruism merchandise to advertise the movement

Yeah! I've thought about this and think it's a good idea. I suggest joining the EA Creatives and Communicators Slack if you want to work with other people on this.

There was also this post from a while back.

How long until we *will* stop recommending Longtermist research effort/funding on the margin?

I recommend emphasizing the "will" and "should" in the question titles because otherwise they look like duplicate questions if one is not reading carefully. You could use asterisks or all caps (although all caps usually looks like shouting 😅).

There should be a directory of EA co-living spaces, if there isn't already. The EA Hub would be a good place for it.

Criticism of the EA community

Making specialty meats like foie gras using cellular agriculture could be especially promising. Foie gras traditionally involves fattening ducks or geese by force-feeding them, which is especially ethically problematic (although alternative production methods exist). It could probably be produced by growing liver and fat cells in a medium without much of a scaffold, which would make it easier to develop.

Suffering-Focused Ethics (SFE) FAQ

Also, you don't need to insert the table of contents into the post itself because the EA Forum automatically generates a TOC in the sidebar.
