Really nice experience. :)

Thanks for the update. From what I have skimmed it looks really polished. I shared it with my local group. :)

Hi Janika,

welcome to the EA Forum.

Can you send me a link to some music you produced? Always interested in listening to new stuff. :)

Maybe the people of Artists of Impact have similar experiences.

What is your exposure of Effective Altruism and what are you interested in atm?

I also was not able to find it directly on the website.

You can have a look into the Shrimp Welfare Project (SWP), a new EA organization created through the Charity Entrepreneurship Incubation Program 2021.

Andrés Jimenez Zorilla was also on the how I learned to love shrimp podcast.

 

Hi Claudia,
welcome to the EA Forum. :)

There are EA ops groups:
EA Operations Slack for those who are currently working at EA orgs already, or their Facebook group Effective Altruism Operations.

At the EAGx Berlin 2023 we had an operations meetup, I can ask if you want to connect with some of the organizer.

Here is also the Effective Altruism Singapore local chapter.

Good luck with your career path.
 

Hi Jordan,
welcome to the EA Forum. :)

@Ekaterina_Ilin studies stars and exoplanets at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam. Maybe this connection can help you with your research.

This topic was discussed yesterday in the EA Germany Slack, starting with this article and asking if there is a website which lists all companies in Germany who match donations:

Why Workplace Giving Matters for Nonprofits + Companies

Some companies use external service providers for their matching. We can look at their clients to gain more information who matches donations.

Matching Gift Software Vendors: The Comprehensive List

With some examples:
https://benevity.com/client-stories
https://www.joindeed.com/ 
https://360matchpro.com/partners/ 

Could be a first step.

Hi Alyssa,

welcome to the EA Forum. :) This post could also have been a Quick Take or a post in this open thread as a starting point.

This serves well as your introduction, and I am glad you wrote it. Your post could already make someone curious if their company maybe too participates in matching donations and gives an incentive to search for opportunities on a small scale level.

To get the proposed public list going, it could help to make a separate post going more into detail on which actions to take and a more detailed sketch of the first plan (does not need to be perfect!).

Perhaps someone else has thought about this idea too, and we can brainstorm here a bit.

And there is also the online team:

For questions like this I would use the intercom, read here how the team wants to get in contact:

I don't know the formula, but I think the reading time looks at the number of words and estimates how long someone would need to read this much text.
 
"The general adult population read 150 – 250 words per minute, while adults with college education read 200 – 300 words per minute. However, on average, adults read around 250 words per minute."
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-fast-considered-speed-reading-quick-facts-paul-nowak

This text has 3037 words. 3037 / 250 = 12,15 min.

"In the English language, people speak about 140 words per minute. A fast speaker will get to 170 words per minute, a slow speaker will use around 110 words."
https://debatrix.com/en/speech-calculator/ 

3037 / 140 = 21,70 min

The AI finished reading this post at 18:50 with the outro left. So we have 18,83 min.
3037 / 18,83 = 161,29 words per minute

The AI voice speaks slightly faster than the average human.

Does this answer your question?
