“The Precipice” by Toby Ord flashcards now live :)
I’m currently reading “The Precipice” and thought it’d be a perfect EA-aligned book to also create flashcards for to share with the community.
I’m a huge proponent of writing flashcards in plain-text format (reasoning here under the appropriate heading), so I’ve provided a link to the Google Doc containing the flashcards on this page on the site. This is also useful if you’re not a current Anki user but would like to glance through just to see what I’ve done & the contents of the book.
I’ve also created a downloaded shared Anki deck here for ease-of-use.
As a quick summary of the first post, I’ve created a website with the aim to a) get the ideas and techniques of meta-learning in front of as many EAs & 80,000 Hours-aligned people as possible, and to b) act as a repository of EA/ 80,000 Hours flashcard decks to improve retention, knowledge formation etc. More details can be found on the site! It’s very work in progress right now so I’ve added a quick roadmap page to outline what is in the pipeline.
A note that I’ve also added a newsletter to the site to notify you when a new flashcard deck or post is added :)
Any feedback welcome, this is very much a work in progress but I wanted to get some useable resources published ASAP!
