Measure is unceasing

Quick thoughts on Manifund’s application to Open Philanthropy

Manifund is a new effort to improve, speed up and decentralize funding mechanisms in the broader Effective Altruism community, by some of the same people previously responsible for Manifold. Due to Manifold’s policy of making a bunch of their internal documents public, you can see their application to Open Philanthropy here (also a markdown backup here).

Here is my perspective on this:

A funny thing is that Manifund itself can’t say, and probably doesn’t think of their pathway to impact as: do things much better than EA funds by being absurdly more competent than them. It would look arrogant if they said it. But I can say it!
