Community Spotlight:

Caleb Watney and Alec Stapp recently launched the Institute for Progress. IFP is a new EA/Progress Studies aligned think tank dedicated to accelerating scientific, technological, and industrial progress while safeguarding humanity's future. Initial areas of focus include Metascience, Immigration, Biosecurity, and Emerging Tech. Their team includes Nikki Teran, Senior Biosecurity Fellow, and Jeremy Neufeld, Senior Immigration Fellow.
Do you know someone in our community that should be in the spotlight? Maybe you have just published a book, gotten a new job, or started a new charity or project? If you have an idea for a future spotlight please email us to let us know!
