Effec­tive Altru­ism Forum

TagLast edit: 11 Jan 2022 18:01 UTC by Leo

The Effective Altruism Forum (often spelled EA Forum) is a community blog and forum focused on discussion of issues related to effective altruism.

History

The EA Forum was launched in 2014, with seed content from a group blog that ran between 2012 and 2014, and published posts by early members of the effective altruism community.[1][2] It was relaunched in 2018 with a new codebase and a dedicated team.[3]
