EA Hotel appears to still be having trouble raising funds:
Unfortunately our runway is down to <2 months. Donations made within the next month have particularly high marginal valuemichelle_hutchinson on How to do EA Global well? How can one act during EA Global so as to make the most effective changes afterwards?
This depends a bunch on your temperament, but I find general 'mingling' - going into a large room full of people and speaking to whoever I come across - really exhausting. I've gotten a lot out of looking through the people coming on the app beforehand, seeing who I'd particularly like to meet, and then setting up times/places to meet with them in advance. It makes the experience feel less rushed and more targeted to me.peter_hurford on How we think about the Forum
I'd just like to +1 that SEO could be very valuable.
More generally, I'd like to see more work into solving the "lost content" problem. My guess is that great posts from last year are rarely read or remembered today while they might still be rather relevant. “Best posts since you last visited” could be helpful, but so would SEO and also maybe tags.peter_hurford on How to do EA Global well?

Most but not all talks are recorded and you can watch them later. "My current plan is to largely try and meet people" sounds like a good plan to me. The meetups can be an especially good venue for this.david_moss on Please Take the 2019 EA Survey!
SurveyMonkey tracks and reports completion time and this was the average time at the point this was posted on the EA Forum (which was after several hundred respondents had already taken the Survey via other means). The median time spent, as it stands now, is still 20 minutes.jamiegittins on Introducing Fish Welfare Initiative
Really glad to see an organisation focused on this cause. I look forward to following your progress!michael_cohen on X-risk dollars -> Andrew Yang?
it doesn't follow that it's a good investment overall
Yes, it doesn't by itself--my point was only meant as a counterargument to your claim that the efficient market hypothesis precluded the possibility of political donations being a good investment.nathan on Who should I put a funder of a $100m fund in touch with?
Out of interested why do you think it's bad to discuss publicly?agdfoster on Who should I put a funder of a $100m fund in touch with?
Nice one! There are a few strong options but would need more info to give a decent suggestion, hard to say just based on the above, drop me an email at [myusername] @gmail.com and probably happy to put you in touch with some people. I’d generally advise erring against discussing potential major donors on a public forum.
