There's an Awesome AI Ethics List and it's a little thin

I recently stumbled upon the Awesome Artificial Intelligence Ethics list, and was somewhat underwhelmed with its quality. While it has enough links to look like a good and useful Awesome List, I think I'd come away from it mostly confused and unsure where to go next. Some obvious oversights include:

  • The books section is quite short, given the amount of material that's been published in this space since SuperIntelligence.
  • LessWrong is in the Blogs section, but the Effective Altruism and AI Alignment Fora are not.
  • There are a ton of great introductory-to-in-the-weeds podcasts on AI Ethics topics, but there's no podcasts section (or other section in which podcasts would clearly be appropriate).
  • There are number of technical research agenda that would be Awesome to list on the off chance anyone happens upon this list and wants to work their way up to the actual state of research.

I'm going to make some pull requests, but I can only suggest what I know about. Perhaps you can help?

We need a general mechanism to be able to link some Github repositories to the community here. I have previously said that the best textbooks post should be migrated, and I have seen quite a number of “aggregation” posts in the forums. See, e.g., this podcast list.

One solution is to add ability for a post to use the markdown from an external URL. This, plus tagging the “aggregation” posts, plus showing some tags like this as a section on the frontpage, will pretty much solve the problem. Can someone ping an admin to pitch in on this?
