Effective philanthropy

I spend a lot of my time thinking about how we can most effectively make the world better, and I’m generally involved with the “effective altruism” movement.

I write about the topic periodically.

I have been tangentially involved or am socially connected with many organizations that work on the question, including the Open Philanthropy Project/GiveWell and the Centre for Effective Altruism.

In 2015, Katja Grace and I decided to use an unusual mechanism to make some of our donations for the year.
