Clearly the list I’ve given is in­com­plete. I imag­ine most mem­bers of the Sin­gu­lar­ity In­sti­tute be­long here; oth­er­wise their mo­tives are pretty baf­fling. But equally clearly, the list will not in­clude ev­ery­one.

What’s my point? My point is that these peo­ple should be co­op­er­at­ing. But we can’t co­op­er­ate un­less we know who we are. If you feel your name be­longs on this list then add a top-level com­ment to this thread, and feel free to add any in­for­ma­tion about what this means to you per­son­ally or what plans you have. Or it’s enough just to say, “I want to save the world”.

This time, no-one’s sign­ing up for any­thing. I’m just do­ing this to let you know that you’re not alone. But maybe some of us can find some­where to talk that’s a lit­tle quieter.
