I don't know why people keep downvoting my posts. I agree that they could be better, but I don't think my post's karma accurately reflects their worth. I am biased, however.

My name is Wes Reisen. I’m currently figuring out career stuff/life plans. I’m relatively new to the EA (I started interacting with it on July 12, 2023) 

How others can help me

Sometimes, I might ask for help with research. Also, if you know any good internship or volunteer roles, or any good job boards, or are hiring, please reach out! (Public résumé: https://www.canva.com/design/DAF2mR33vuE/4-qki-V4l87yNrkkI2oXdA/edit?utm_content=DAF2mR33vuE&utm_campaign=designshare&utm_medium=link2&utm_source=sharebutton) (One piece of vital and relevant[1] information about me is somewhat private[2], and is available upon request).

    That is, it would likely change [how/if] you would [hire me OR consider hiring me].

    I don't want this info on the internet publicly.

How I can help others

I’m pretty good with numbers(I feel comfortable thinking about (e^(1/0)), so if you have any questions about math, I’m happy to help!

I can also help with work and productivity tips (e.g., to stay awake, do something actively. Pause your all-nighter, play one round of Call Of Duty, and then get back to work. It’ll keep you up and productive all night long.)

I can also provide research assistance, summarize information, check things for errors (Not very well though), and more. Feel free to ask if I can help with __, and hopefully, I’ll say yes!

I also have connections with Kim Lewis, so if you'd gain from that, feel free to reach out, and I'll see how I could help with that.

I’m also quite passionate (though 80,000 hours points out that there are more pressing & tractable matters) about ageism/rights of youth, so if you have any questions about that, I can help with that too.

Is there going to be any open forum before the event ends in 2 hours that I can attend virtually?

One potential downside: shorter people means less physical capacity, as somewhat mentioned in the above area. I agree that most recources would be [doubled*], but recources that require physical labor will be comparatively twice as slow, perhaps having a nagative inmact on the economy. I'm not sure if "the doubling" offsets this. Epistemic status: "Idk tho"

Given that you made this forum post, I figured you mighr be in the feild of biosecurity, and therefore might find the database linked here to be useful: https://www.gryphonscientific.com/practice-areas/data-management-and-communications/

I recently found a huge public database of databases, and I figured I'd share it here.

I didn't know about this, now I think I have a new netflix shot to watch! thanks!

On the topic, I hear season 7, episode 5 of young sheldon is abput a dangerous AI. Edit: I watched the episode, it's not.

  1. you do bring up an interesting point that this should be factored into where nets are distributed.
  2. (this is a very draft-stage idea) maybe if the nets weren't that water-proof, this issue would be solved? (cons: flooding, rain, potential pollution if, in the water, it dissipates, and less durability)
  3. Maybe mention this to someone at givewell? idk tho
