Narveson’s principle is found at the heart of preference-based axiologies where what matters is preference (dis)satisfaction . In Christoph Fehige’s words: "We have obligations to make preferrers satisfied, but no obligations to make satisfied preferrers" (Fehige, "A pareto principle for possible people", 1998, p.518).

Creating large numbers of beings while ensuring that all their preferences or goals are satisfied – which could be achieved by making provisions for the newly created beings to have easily satisfiable preferences, or preferences that correspond very closely with the most likely state of the world – may strike us as a pointless endeavor. The claim that an extra preference in itself is of little value, so that “Maximizers of preference satisfaction should instead call themselves minimizers of preference frustration.” (Fehige, ibid.) is the gist of Fehige's anti-frustrationism.

Intuitions such as “Making people happy rather than making happy people” are linked to the Epicurean view that non-existence does not constitute a deplorable state. Proponents of this view reason that the suffering and/or frustrated preferences of a being constitute a real, tangible problem for that being. By contrast, non-existence is free of moral predicaments for any evaluating agent, given that by definition no such agent exists. Why, then, might we be tempted to consider non-existence a problem? Non-existence may seem unsettling to us , because from the perspective of existing beings, no-longer -existing is a daunting prospect. Importantly however, death or no-longer-existing differs fundamentally from never having been born, in that it is typically preceded and accompanied by suffering and/or frustrated preferences.

Acceptance of the above moral asymmetry between the pair suffering/happiness as pertaining to existence/non-existence grounds a strong, moral reason to concentrate on suffering and/or preference frustration as opposed to the promotion of happiness. It comes with an understanding of ethics as being about solving the world’s problems: We confront spacetime, see wherever there is or will be a problem, i.e. a struggling being, and we solve it.

Views that incorporate this intuition: The intuition “ Making people happy rather than making happy people ” is directly incorporated in so-called person-affecting views , where affairs can only be morally bad if they are bad for someone , i.e. if there is a being to point to for whom something poses a problem. One such view is (a version of) anti-natalism (e.g. David Benatar, “Better never to have been”, 2008). The same underlying intuition is also present in preference-based approaches such as Fehige’s AllhqFashion Womens Buckle PU Round Closed Toe LowHeels Solid PumpsShoes White 1LLgsvUnR
that we mentioned before. In addition, it probably inspired the “moral ledger” view laid out by Peter Singer in his Practical Ethics, 3 as well as in the “prior-existence” view he tentatively endorsed in the same book. 4 Finally, Toddler Baby Winter Fleece Fur Snow Ankle Slip on Soft Slipper Boot Shoes Grey2 gGbT2C39S
can incorporate the intuition by giving priority to suffering reduction as long as suffering is still around. 5

On the design of Stop Slacking , which lets you interact via email with the poor souls trapped in the endless, no-agenda meeting that is Slack.

In 2018 May NIKE Womens Flex Experience RN 6 Prem Running Shoe Black/Hot Punch/Cool Grey/White Ht7Bh17hx
and I spent a month traveling around New Zealand’s South Island via camper van. Everything you’ve heard about that country’s scenic beauty is true: We traveled forested mountain passes, rolling sheep-filled grasslands, lush rain forests, and pristine glacial lakes:

Unsurprisingly, many of these beautiful, remote places had little-or-no cellular connectivity.

The Internet situation was somewhat better in small town hotels and holiday parks, where wifi could usually be had via paper vouchers worth 50 MB or 30 minutes.

This wouldn’t have been an issue if we were 100% on holiday, but Nicki had a part-time retainer doing UX design and strategy consulting with a company in Australia.

Unfortunately, that company communicated almost entirely via Slack.

Slack, for those of you who have only experienced the Internet via direct-fiber-to-San-Francisco, is not exactly a bandwidth-optimized application: Just loading an empty workspace in the web app costs about 8 MB (and that’s before anyone starts posting animated GIFs):

This kind of overhead just isn’t going to work when you’ve only got a spotty cellular connection and a bunch of ADHD Aussies incapable of communicating more than one sentence at a time.

If only there were a text-based, asynchronous communication technology robust enough for intermittent, low-bandwidth connectivity.

Say, some kind of technology that downloaded messages when connectivity was available, allowed one to search, organize, and even compose replies while offline, and then send those replies next time connectivity were available.

Product design

As it turns out, a 1970’s technology known as “Electronic Mail” meets all these requirements!

However, it’s no small challenge to convince an organization to switch its preferred communication medium. In this case, it’d be a fight not just against human inertia, but also against hundreds of millions of dollars worth of VC-funded advertising and startup herd mentality.

Together, these two observations form the core product design constraints:

These two constraints lead to an ideal product-usage scenario:

To implement this interaction, Stop Slacking must be able to:

We’ll cover these in turn.

Integrating with Slack

Since we can’t require action from a workspace administrator (design constraint #1), a Slack App is off the table.

Fortunately, Slack still supports “legacy” token-based API access , which allows one to programmatically search and post messages via an HTTP API.

Users “sign up” by emailing their workspace token to InterestPrint Womens Classic Fashion High Heel Dress Pump Shoes Multi 2 YoeuJXz
. Stop Slacking then uses this token to poll the Slack API for direct messages and mentions.

Managing emails

When someone receives a message, Stop Slacking sends them an email. When they reply to this email, Stop Slacking posts their reply — so replies must somehow be associated with a Slack message.

Relying on the presence of the original message text is tricky — there’s no reason to expect Slack messages to be unique (e.g., there may be multiple “, do you have a minute?” messages in a channel), so the email would need to include some kind of unique identifier. But that identifier might not make it back in the reply — not all email clients automatically quote emails, they might quote differently, and people might mangle or otherwise remove the identifier.

So, instead of relying on content within the email body, Stop Slacking gives every notification email a unique address. Then, when an reply is received at this unique address, Stop Slacking knows which Slack message the reply is intended for.

In terms of a person’s email address, there are at least three in play:

This last address cannot be relied upon because of email spoofing , and is ignored entirely.

As for the first two, there’s no reason to constrain them to be identical — in fact, keeping them distinct enables more capabilities.

For example, receiving notifications from different Slack workspaces at different email addresses (say, and ) allows one to easily tag and filter with their email client.

So, Stop Slacking ignores the email address listed in Slack and instead only uses the one provided with the token during initial signup.

Technical implementation

From a technical perspective, Stop Slacking isn’t a particularly interesting application:

The application state is fairly minimal. It consists of:

The only Slack APIs used are search.messages (to poll for messages) and , which is needed to replace user IDs in message text with display names (presumably textual references to other Slackers are stored as IDs so that messages can always be rendered with someone’s current display name).

Perhaps more interesting was the coding itself — the application couldn’t be run locally within the camper van itself, because simply retrieving the AWS SDK dependency from Maven would cost 160MB. Instead, the application was developed on a throwaway EC2 development machine via SSH.

Nicki and I designed and built the prototype together over a few evenings in New Zealand. Since then, she’s written and illustrated Carol Shoes Womens Sweet Bows Assorted Colors Casual Cuff Low Heel Loafers Shoes Blue DppLx
and refined the product features.

Future work

While we developed Stop Slacking specifically for Nicki’s situation, there are some features that easily fit within the current design and provide more powerful capabilities:

No buy-in . Slackers shouldn’t need to change their behavior at all. The product should provide value to single individuals, without requiring any action from others.
