Effec­tive Altru­ism Forum

TagLast edit: 17 May 2021 22:48 UTC by Pablo

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 (Effective Altruism 2012; Hokama 2014). It was relaunched in 2018 with a new codebase and a dedicated team (Gertler 2018).
