I like the ideas here. I see a lot of potential value in having a core group of EAs who are focused on the movement itself and on cause prioritization, crucial considerations, etc… and then also trying to shift the mindset of the wider population of people-who-donate-to-things so that they tend to look at GiveWell’s recommendations and so on… without trying to get those people to join the movement as a movement or whatever.
I will second the sentiment that this post seems super overmentiony of Intentional Insights. For a non-profit, it feels awfully self-interested. I’m not sure what I’d recommend instead exactly, but maybe if you’re following the “do things + tell people” approach, shift your focus a bit more towards doing things.
Glad you support the ideas! I know we talked about chatting over Skype in early January, would be glad to chat about this as well.
Good point about shifting towards doing things and less about telling people! Will do :-)
