[Question] How have you become more (or less) engaged with EA in the last year?

I’m in­ter­ested in sto­ries of peo­ple chang­ing the way they in­ter­act with the EA move­ment/​com­mu­nity, whether they’ve be­come more deeply in­volved or di­aled down their in­volve­ment. This seems like a good way to un­der­stand what EA’s “in­fras­truc­ture” (or­ga­ni­za­tions, com­mu­ni­ties, etc.) is do­ing well or badly.

Has your in­volve­ment changed in the last ~12 months? If so, what fac­tors were im­por­tant in that change?

Ex­am­ples might in­clude:

  • Get­ting a new job in the community

  • At­tend­ing your first conference

  • Tak­ing a pledge re­lated to your giving

  • Hav­ing a per­sonal ex­pe­rience that made EA feel more mean­ingful or spe­cial to you

  • Find­ing a new job/​hobby/​com­mu­nity out­side of EA that led you to be­come less engaged

  • Hav­ing an un­pleas­ant in­ter­ac­tion that made you feel some­what alienated from EA
