I like life as an ecosystem of people and projects - aligning more or less with each of them over time, not just binary in/out.
I listed 6 or 7 such projects that are on my radar right now, and wondered how to evaluate them, I'm trying this system of 3 questions, each scored 0-10 plus a comment:
a) how enjoyable is the experience of participating?
b) how much does it support my needs? (economic, social, material, emotional, etc)
c) how well does it align with my values?
