Is there any plan to translate Doing Good Better to other languages? Spanish in particular. I think it would be the best introductory material to EA.
Career switch in a third world country
Hey guys! I'm not sure if this is the place to post it, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter. I am from Argentina and I'm based there. I work remotely in an American startup (I don't want to relocate), and I consider myself a really good software engineer. I got into tech because I thought I could have a huge impact! After reading the 80k blog a thousand times I started considering a career switch. I'm not sure anymore about how much impact I can have as a software engineer. I'm 23, and I've been considering a career in academia. I discarded AI, so I'm thinking about a completely different field (economics).Assume I enjoy both the same and I'm equally good: can you think of any scenario in which I can have more impact as a software engineer?
Pros for switching:
Pros for staying on software engineering:
Hey guys! I think this is awesome. Have you thought about creating a Facebook group for people who are interested?
