Exciting! Congratulations and all the best, everyone!
Thank you for the question! Our plans for the next twelve months are avaialble in this section https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/iEep6WCzCG7QLkxp9/the-years-0-and-1-of-the-policy-entrepreneurship-network#Looking_forward. It's probable that we will publish more on that in late Q4 2020 or early Q1 2021.
Thanks for asking! Here's a list of projects that might interest you. Good luck!
Hi Aaron, I've just sent the data again. I used the email address associated with your eahub.org account. Please, write us at email@example.com in case you did not receive it by now.
Hi, Aaron! Thanks for raising your concern! Your profile is still here https://eahub.org/profile/aaron-hamlin/, but it hasn't been activated yet (it will become publicly accessible only after you've reset your password). About donation data, we decided to no longer keep that on the Hub, but we would be happy to try to restore your data and send it to you if that's what you'd like.
There's another list that's kept in here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yzmg02j8PnvjlV_KX3Vf_u9TNdAS63N-9xy2txmTg-A/edit#gid=957019158. (Posting to make sure you're aware. I think gathering good ideas is important.)
Thanks! I added both of your ideas here: https://feedback.eahub.org/. Integrating our profiles with LinkedIn sounds like a low hanging fruit, so I just prioritized it for the June release: https://github.com/rtcharity/eahub.org/issues/598.
Do you have a record of number of people registered over time?
We do have the registration dates. We'll look into making that into a report for you (https://github.com/rtcharity/eahub.org/issues/595).
Could you please add the Alliance to Feed the Earth in Disasters (ALLFED) to the list of Organisational Affiliations?
Sure, thank you for asking (https://github.com/rtcharity/eahub.org/issues/592)!
Thanks for raising this! We're very interested in learning about the features you find exceptionally attractive in this sense. We use this to help us keep track of such ideas: https://feedback.eahub.org/. There's also a roadmap here that represents a few of our best guesses: https://eahub.org/about/.
Thanks, Peter! We're still spreading the news of the launch. We use several channels and get a very warm response, which is wonderful!
About the accuracy of the data on personal profiles, we've emailed all of our user base asking to update and activate their profiles (all 4000+ of our users will remain hidden before that takes place). We're confident that the number of people that join us will grow steadily as we add features (you can read about our plans in here https://eahub.org/about/).
The accuracy of the data on local groups will be assur... (read more)
Sure, linking to it sounds like a fantastic idea! We prioritised this for our next release: https://github.com/rtcharity/eahub.org/issues/571
Just to clarify: we're not "phasing out" tech support.As we say in the post:
We currently equip local groups with essential technology such as websites, domains, and mailboxes. We anticipate that these will ultimately be transitioned over to CEA and/or be privately hosted by groups. We will continue to provide the services in the interim.
Thanks for raising this! At LEAN, we're making efforts to improve communication in this space. There's this spreadsheet that will soon be integrated into the brand new eahub.org (which is a volunteer-driven project itself): goo.gl/6vQZVZ
I believe this is the ultimate vision Rethink Charity’s EA Hub team is working towards. After speaking with the EA Hub, my assessment is that our MVP (minimum viable product) concept and their MVP concept are quite different but may converge in the future; their MVP emphasizes community profiles and geolocation, whereas our MVP emphasizes projects, project evaluations, and project support opportunities.
Our vision is much broader and includes not only profiles of individuals, groups and organisations, but also platforms for collaboration and volunteering, ... (read more)
It might be a good idea for LEAN, CEA, and LessWrong to get together and discuss this?
We actually did! With resources.eahub.org, we wanted to share LEAN's idea of what texts you should look into when you're a group organizer. We discussed this with our partners at CEA and decided that offering 2 perspectives is better than offering 1 and that we should work together on 2 independent products.We figured out we don't want the Resources to be a fixed, static list, but an open, collaborative platform. This way, you're all... (read more)
The primary reason was the stability of the old platform. We decided to not invest any more time in fixing it and move our resources to building the new version instead. We plan on releasing it within 2 weeks. Meanwhile, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if there's any way we can help!
Hey Jeffrey, check out "EA Resources" by LEAN and fill in this form by CEA. You can also reach out to the local presence in Manila by writing email@example.com. Good luck with growing your group!
At the local presence I run, there happen to appear projects I anticipate strongly to fail when posted, but encourage to try nevertheless for a couple of reasons not mentioned in your post, Richenda:
• The chances for flow-through effects, that "a substantial part of the good that one does may be indirect" and "helping to address any problem is a possible path to addressing many other problems" (https://blog.givewell.org/2013/05/15/flow-through-effects/).
• There's value in building the culture of doing. I believe the old motto of ours ... (read more)
There's been another edition of the Effective Altruism Boot Camp held in Cracow, Poland. We have doubled in size and set off for regular project work. It's thanks to many months of hard work of these folks: Aga Pisz, Aneta Błachewicz, Marcin Kowrygo, Marcin Woźniak. Thank you!
I do believe this is valid for the reasons you have brought up and also true on the market level. I would argue that a generic idea a firm can adopt as its own (own it) is more commercially attractive than a product explicitly corellated with an unmanageable social movement. The decision to move this product outside of our brand is small but important, and I opt for it.
The remaining question to everyone then is how to build and market that product? Wouldn't the criteria of importance, tractability and uncrowdedness be a good start (as mentioned by William ... (read more)
