[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
