I haven't used Trello all that much... but the board's name that is linked is 'small tasks'. Is there a different board for larger ones? If not, what is the key for knowing the time assigned to each task?
Josh JUsing the database of all 501(c)3 organizations in the US, I plan to create ratings for every charity, based on effectiveness.
Rationale: GiveWell and EA in general have had trouble with mass-appeal in part because tools that work on overhead ratio are more popular. These, such as Charity Navigator, have great appeal in large part because people can get a score for nearly any organization. This will create an EA alternative. The version 0 of this can be created quite easily and still be meaningful, while iterations will much improve the product.
Limitations: Initial scores will lack confidence as they will be based pretty much on just the organization name. Long-term scores will never approach GiveWell levels of confidence. Organizations with names with non-obvious purposes (i.e. Kiva) will have no rating until a manual review.
To address these limitations, clear and prominent communication on levels of confidence will be central, and manual reviews will be ongoing.
Data / evaluation
Use charity's names to tag them for effectiveness indicators
Examples: a disease name, a location name, a cause area name, type of action taken, etc.
i.e. if organization name contains 'Malaria', it's more likely to be effective
i.e. if organization name contains 'Congo', it's more likely to be effective
i.e. if organization name contains 'Homeopaths', it's likely to not be effective
Manually program in obvious scores, such as AMF and Homeopaths without Borders
Based on the tags and number of tags assign a rating of effectiveness and a level of confidence in the rating
Begin manually evaluating charities to turn this into a supervised machine learning problem, and update ratings and confidence levels for charities that have not yet been manually rated
Front-end presentation of charity ratings
Front-end index &/or search page
Implement a back-end that reads from data file and updates the view
Needed: person or technical service for part 2b
Needed: manual evaluators comfortable providing opinions on charity effectiveness based on the limited available public data (instructions and guidelines will be given)
Optional: Data scientists to review / coordinate on data implementation
Optional: Someone to lead the front-end presentation from the design standpoint
