Mapping of EA

post by Charlie Dougherty · 2021-12-02T10:25:43.406Z · EA · GW · 8 comments

This is a question post.


Does anyone have a current mapping of the EA ecosystem? Something that would include, for example:

I am building off of Gidon's earlier post on the exploratory obstacle [EA · GW]. If I wanted a complete introduction to EA, does anyone have a document or website that they could point to? Please let me know if there should be anything else on that list to describe EA today!

Thanks for your help!

Not exactly what you are looking for, but here is an actual [metaphorical] map (although it could do with updating; it's from Feb 2020):

Oh Wow, that's a really fun idea. Thanks for sharing! It's like someone was writing an EA  fantasy series.

These might be useful for creating a map:

Thanks Gidon! Would you think this is a useful exercise to try?

I think it does! It's important in my opinion that there would be someone who can maintain the map over time, and that it would be easy to make changes to (e.g. if it's an infographic then it can be made easy if it's made in Canva)

Hi Jordan, 

Thanks for the interest! I am not sure what form this would take, or if I am the right person to be doing it, but if something happens to come up I will keep you in the loop
