More info on EA Global admissions

Thank you for organizing this event and providing this thoughtful post.

Have we considered offering to provide the information for folks that applied via the Bizzabo app or inviting rejected applicants to the dinners? Frankly, I'm less interested in the speakers which can be viewed later via YouTube, but in the past I have benefited from meeting attendees and sharing ideas and experiences with others in the community. In the past, this was either via the conference app or just meeting in person.

Another thought would be to accept folks for certain days in the conference, if someone indicates in the form that they are willing to attend for only one of the two or three days. Or, maybe even just invite rejected folks to the Friday evening event, since that doesn't involve lunch, which is a bottleneck. Perhaps that is just too much complexity for an already complex event, but just a thought. Thanks again.

How to use the Forum

Thanks for organizing this. There is a lot of great content here that I've found interesting and useful.

EA gifts for kids?

I don't have much to add here, but this is a great question and one I'd be interested in more thoughts on. "Children Just Like Me" looks like a good book. My daughter also likes a book called "Be Kind" that was given to us -- it is about kindness generally and not effective altruism specifically, but helpful. It would be great to collect a list of resources on this topic somewhere sometime.

Lawyering to Give

Jeff, thanks for sharing these articles and your thoughts on this.

Thanks for the thorough explanation and recommendations. What if someone is looking for financial advice unrelated to asset allocation (e.g., regarding how much they can donate and when, given their retirement savings and college savings)? Or, advice regarding insurance products or real estate decisions? Would you recommend a fee-only financial planner in that instance?
