Working at EA organizations series: Why work at an EA organization?

I wouldn't assume that the people making large donations to GiveWell charities or TLYCS' members are EAs are dedicated EAs. Equally I wouldn't say there are tens of thousands of people very interested in EA on the basis of unique website views (do the figures you gave refer to visits or visitors?)

there's thousands of dedicated EAs, and tens of thousands of people very interested in it.

What are you basing these estimates on? I'd be interested to find out what the best estimates of them that we have are.

What is the ".impact slack" and how do you join it?

I heard TLYCS might be making one, and they seem uniquely well placed to doing so.

I thought EAs were mostly consequentialists

I think the survey of EAs from the start of the year picked up a few hundred non-consequentialists. It had a high %age of consequentialists, but emphasized this figure shouldn't be taken as covering all EAs out there.

Any chance of a breakdown? What were the Vox and slatestarcodex articles?

Collective Action and Individual Impact

Do EA's generally think we have an obligation to take the action which will do the 'most' good?

Collective Action and Individual Impact

Isn't that a common distinction among philosophers? I recall that there's a technical name for it.
