I am Malcolm Collins, a long-time EA who was only recently convinced to take a shot at posting on the forums by one of our students. My core passions are trying to rebuild the education system with CollinsInstitute.org and trying to preserve the EA sociological profile in the face of demographic collapse (Pronatalist.org)—because right now the EA meme is liable to extinguish itself through negatively modifying the fitness of individuals with the sociological profile that makes them amenable to it, which is . . . not good.
Education: Stanford, MBA; St Andrews, Neuroscience
Books (released): The Pragmatist’s Guide to Life, The Pragmatist’s Guide to Sexuality, The Pragmatist’s Guide to Relationships
Books (in final stages): The Pragmatist’s Guide to Crafting Culture/Religion, The Pragmatist’s Guide to Governance
Day job: I run Travelmax.com with my wife which we acquired via the search fund model. In our spare time we do "secret society work" (my wife was formerly Managing Director of Dialog and we were tapped to lay the foundations for Schmidt Futures’ Act 2 Network).
What would help me most are any tips / pointers / intros relevant to fundraising for CollinsInstitute.org
I also firmly believe EAers should be having more kids. Should you have any schemes around this or if you happen to be building intergenerational plans for the world, we should talk.
If you are in middle or high school, reach out. My organization, CollinsInstitute.org, is designed to slingshot secondary-school-age students into positions of greater agency and influence well before college.
