The Future Fund’s Project Ideas Competition

Yes, that too, but what I was thinking is that the votes on "whom to hire" could be used then (if you voted on the winning candidate) as shares of bonus paid out monthly.

What are the most important charts, graphs, statistics, or other data visualizations related to effective giving?

Could you provide sources to the charts you added there? It'd be nice to take into account how up-to-date it is or what's the underlying data source when we'll be voting on them :) Also I'm thinking of redoing & sharing some of these in my language.

The Future Fund’s Project Ideas Competition

EA-themed Superhero Graphic Novel / Shounen Anime / K Drama

Effective Altruism Meta, Community Building

I really like to think about that Superman fanfic where he tried to aim for 'most good'. Many existing superhero stories could be rewritten so the main protagonists tries to maximize their impact. I know non-fiction movies/documentaries were mentioned but I think the 3 types of media I mentioned have the potential to become really popular (are consumed by vast number of teenagers and (young) adults globally. It's a risk (it could be a flop), but I think one we could take. I am pretty confident a big enough budget can 'buy quality' so it would be better than average story.

The Future Fund’s Project Ideas Competition

Funding Stress/Penetration Tests of vital orgs/infrastructure

Cyber Risks, Cybersecurity

Most orgs don't spend enough on ensuring their infrastructure is safe from hackers and we should ensure that labs working on AI safety, biorisk companies, EA orgs etc. are safe from malicious hackers.

The Future Fund’s Project Ideas Competition

Internal market for (EA) recruitment
Effective Altruism Operations, Economic Growth

Open source tool that would allow companies/orgs to set up internal (prediction) markets where all employees could bet on which candidate would be the best fit and be awarded points/real money for every month they stayed at the company.

What I think I'd love to see is one of the below:
- statistics bootcamps
- statistics tutoring (or more like lack of problems to work on with your tutor, my idea was to try and go through actuary exam questions)
- something like Cochrane Training (where you can learn interventions review) but more broad/general?
