That's awesome to hear and thanks a lot. What are you working on and where, if you don't mind sharing?

Hi Charles, 

Thank you for the encouraging comment and the kind words -  made my day. 

I was really in doubt about whether to post here. I think seeing a lot of the advanced discussions in this forum has left me with a great deal of imposter syndrome, so it means a lot.

Hi Aaron, 

Thanks so much for sharing - that looks super useful for what we are about to do! 

I think what we would ideally like to do is form a strategy based on current evidence,  use that as our baseline and then perform split-testing to improve from there. I will for sure be giving your thesis a more thorough read in the coming weeks. If we find any ways to improve, you can be certain it will warrant some kind of post here :-) 

Thanks!

Hello everyone, this post is yet another introduction. 

My name is Rasmus, and I am one of the co-founders of Effective Altruism Denmark. 

I have been involved in EA for quite some time now, I just somehow never got around to being very active in the forum. However, as I will be defending my thesis in 6 days from now I thought now would be as good a time as any to start. 

Right now, one of the things I care about is trying to raise the donation norm in Denmark. As such, we are trying to copy the success of Effective Altruism Norway, by trying to raise funds for GiveWell recommended charities by promoting their ideas and research to a Danish audience. 

In the meantime, and to keep myself accountable, I am documenting our progress detailing every decision as well as mistake we make. Hopefully, at some point, I will have time to write about our learnings here in the forums.
