Matt Goldenberg donations made

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2023. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

The Case for the EA Hotel (GW, IR)2019-03-31Matt Goldenberg Effective Altruism Forum Centre for Enabling EA Learning & Research Evaluator review of doneeEffective altruism/housingThe author has been staying at the EA Hotel for 3 months and will be staying for another 3 months. The post introduction says its goal is to make a strong case for the EA Hotel, rather than a balanced one; with the balance being provided by the comments on (GW, IR) The post's main points: (1) There is a huge chasm in the EA talent pipeline, between talented people who strongly identify as EAs, and projects with strong evidence from such people, due to the missing middle step of lots of people actually trying out their projects. (2) Funding the EA Hotel is a better way to fill this chasm than trying to directly fund individuals. Some of the good things listed about the hotel: no rent, cheap cost of living and low standard of living, propinquity and collaboration, superconnecting and status building. (3) The EA Hotel is an effective incubator. Some of the good things listed: correct acceptance standards (bar not too high), removing trivial inconveniences, a productivity culture, a growth culture, a support culture, and consistent improvement. Goldenberg, who has previously lived in the group houses Event Horizon and Milivia House, and cofounded Gentle Mesa, compares the environment of the EA Hotel favorably to them. The post is cross-posted to LessWrong at (GW, IR)
