Joey, could you say more what you mean by “concepts...that connect to impact”? I’m interested in examples you’re thinking of. And whether you’re looking for advances on those examples or new/different concepts?
A few examples:- Introduction of new cause areas (e.g. mental health, WAS) - Debates about key issues (e.g. INT framework issues, flaws of the movement)- More concrete issues vs philosophical ones (e.g. how important is outreach, what % of EAs should earn to give)I think the bar I generally compare EA to is, do I learn more from reading the EA forum per minute than from reading a good nonfiction book? Some years this has definitely been true but it has been less true in recent years.
