CFAR ($150,000) 2019-04-23 Oliver Habryka Center for Applied Rationality Julia Galef, Andrew Critch, Kenzi Ashkie, Duncan Sabien, Anna Salamon Third-party commentary on organization Rationality improvement In a writeup explaining the $150,000 grant made from the Effective Altruism Funds' Long Term Future Fund to the Center for Applied Rationality, Oliver Habryka comments on the organization's personnel and financial issues. He notes that key people Julia Galef, Andrew Critch, Kenzi Ashkie, and Duncan Sabien have left and/or reduced their involvement, and Anna Salamon seems less involved in some respects. He also talks about how CFAR decided not to run a fundraiser in 2018 because they felt it would be in bad taste after the Brent Dill controversy, and how this leaves them more cash-strapped now.
