Intentional Insights is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Gleb Tsipursky and Agnes Vishnevkin. Its goal is to raise the sanity waterline, by popularizing rationality and effective altruism for a broad audience. It produces rationality-oriented blog posts, videos, workshops and other materials. Its essays have appeared in The Huffington Post, Salon, The Columbus Dispatch, the Humanist Hour, and elsewhere.

There has been debate on Less Wrong (eg this thread) about Intentional Insights' work, with some commenters expressing concern about the writing style and concern that in adapting rationality concepts for a mainstream audience, important nuance may have been lost so that the ideas would no longer be effective.
