I have got the impression that there is going to be a single funnelling exercise that aims to directly compare shorttermist vs longtermist areas including on their ‘scale’.
Yeah, so I (and others) have been exploring different things, but I don’t know what I’ll end up going with. That said, I think that there are gains to be had in optimizing first two stages, not just the third evaluation stage.
Absolutely, every stage is important.
And reading back what I wrote, it was perhaps a little too strong. I would quite happily adopt MichaelA’s suggested paragraph in place of my penultimate one!
