This LessWrong post about Thomas' paper is also interesting.

Great post! I was mainly concerned with the -values heading haha. I wonder if Thomas Philippon will follow up on all of the attention his paper received.

Good point! Though I think it shouldn't be difficult to figure out a lower upper bound, maybe an economist is working on that right now, depending on how actively researched this domain is.

Comment by Arjun Yadav on What factors make EA outreach at a school valuable? · 2022-04-26T06:39:26.813Z · EA · GW

I think focusing on outreach to top schools is less about elitism and more about the potential to have a greater impact (which is sort of talked about here). I guess we suspect that spreading our community building resources to thousands of schools in America won't be as effective as focusing on the couple hundred universities that have a track record of producing high-impact students, labs, projects, etc. (such as the Ivies or the UC's)

Comment by Arjun Yadav on Aiming for the minimum of self-care is dangerous · 2021-12-17T04:04:42.511Z · EA · GW

Great post, it's amazing to see mental health in the EA-sphere being talked about.

About time tracking, as someone who also tracks their time in little color-coded squares (or rectangles?), you start to associate some colors with negativity and others with positivity, and when you're in a rough spot (or a 'rut' if I may) it can definitely make you feel like you've wasted the week as you glance over.

To me, that's the biggest disadvantage of time-tracking/time-blocking, though for me the advantages vastly outweigh the disadvantages.
