Updates from Bochum and Berlin
Exploring Effective Altruism, Inspirational Encounters, Books and Running
I just wanted to share a few updates from the past week in Bochum and Berlin!
I have been so sick since last week; unfortunately, I could not progress as much as I wanted, but I’m still happy with where I’m heading.
EAGxBerlin; Effective Altruism conference.
I came to Berlin on Friday morning, and we have just completed the Effective Altruism conference here. I have learned about so many issues from Global Health and Poverty to AI Safety. We discussed how we can do the most good with our careers and donations and maximize our impacts. I have learned a lot and met with unique and inspiring people.

I met colleagues from my favorite organizations like Steve Thompson from Charity Entrepreneurship, Sara Elsholz from Impact Ops, Harris Roberts from Giving Directly, Catherine Low from Center of Effective Altruism, and many new ones that I just discovered. One of the leaders in effective altruism and the author of the book Doing Good Better William MacAskill, was also one of the keynote speakers at the conference; it was great to be able to listen to him and ask questions.
I’m listening to the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill; PDF and audio versions are free on Google, as the book doesn’t have copyrights. You can find my previous post about this book and “List of 30 Causes of Failure” here on LinkedIn.
I’m reading the book “The 48 Laws of Power” by Robert Greene; I have seen this book as one of the recommendations in our Whatsapp Group.
As I was ill, I was not able to go out running, but I tried to walk every day and passed 10,000 steps each day. Here is the evidence below :), I hope to start running as soon as I fully recover.
Avarage steps from August 12 to September 12
Space Capsul Hotel
During my trip to Berlin, I stayed at Space Capsul Hotel, it was my first capsule experience. I think it was better than staying at a hostel as you have a bit more privacy. I wouldn’t stay again and not recommend as it’s better to have more space and fresh air.
Thanks for reading; I hope you find it interesting and useful!
