Hi! Just watched the video and I think it’s super well produced, good job.
I was surprised how you managed to summarise a lot of the knowledge I already had on this topic in under 15 minutes.
Furthermore, I have talked to lots of people who mentioned that EA seems underrepresented in video format. YouTube seems like a good opportunity here that could be used more. Regarding this, I think this is valuable work. Also I like that you didn’t give it the Effective Altruism “stamp”. There should be more discussion on when it’s appropriate to publicly advertise EA as a concept and when it’s better to just introduce a topic we’re concerned about without explicitely relating it to EA. This is related to the idea of external movement building:
Thank you! There is actually a longer version of my video (that I didn’t publish) where I mention the EA longterm future fund and quickly pitch EA itself. But I decided to cut out that part because I already share it in a link in the description and it didn’t add a lot to the central claims of the video. It would’ve made the video longer and lose its focus.
Good thinking! Attention spans are short enough these days so 15min seems plenty :)
