Human Future GatewayEdit
The Human Future Website contains a vast database of ideas pertaining to human future which include: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Nanotechnology, Space Colonization, Time Travel, Genetic Engineering, Life Extension, Human Evolution, Nature and Origins.Wiki4ata
This wiki looks like it's off to a great start! I'll definitely make a mention of it and some of the other wikis noted here on my FutureWire blog. I also maintain an experimental wiki focusing on future trends. Brian

There is an irc server called the irc.lucifer.com with many extropian channels. There are 4 channels: #virus (discussing evolution) #sl4 (discussing computer and AI) #immortal (discussing life extension and immortality) #accelerating (discussing technology) Jonano
I started a WIKI on scenario thinking, which is quite expansive. Are you aware of this initiative? I can be contacted on email@example.com, perhapst there are things we can do together. Like your work here
- Will check it out, thanks. Glad you like Future. If we find things to work on together, that would be great. Paranoid 11:51, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
- Let's WikiNode them together. LionKimbro
I notice that some of us are editing the pages near the same time.
I propose that we have a Futures wikis IRC channel, and that it's address be #future on FreeNode.
I know several people who would almost certainly be interested in joining a futures IRC channel. From the TaoRiver futures wiki community: bpt, flammifer, jroes, myself, Danila Mendelev. We already meet in #onebigsoup, which is a social software effort. But I think it would be better if we used #onebigsoup for our particular social software developments, and used #future for future conversation.
Looking for existing chat rooms: I see that there has been an ASF future salon IRC chat room before, before, but I also see that there's nobody home right now. People tend to stay logged in on IRC, so I'm guessing it's not generally active right now.
I also propose that we designate a recommended time window for meeting between ourselves.
LionKimbro has a CommunityWiki meeting on Sunday, 18:00 UTC. So perhaps 20:00 UTC, 21:00 UTC, or 16:00, 17:00 UTC might be good? Saturday at similar times are also good. LionKimbro would prefer to have 20:00 UTC on Sunday.
Time windows are not mandatory, they are not like scheduled meetings, where you are supposed to be there. Only, they are suggestions for when to meet. Think of a hang-out where people like to spend time, rather than a meeting at work, or a doctor's appointment.
If we miss each other a lot, we could designate the first timewindow of the month as more important. So the first Sunday 18:00 UTC would be "the one to attend," if you couldn't make any of the others, or just want to be sure to meet the most people at a time.
- I think this is a great idea. Paranoid 17:55, 4 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Refined Here? Edit
I always figured that [http://futures.wiki.taoriver.net/ the TaoRiver wiki would be the one for more "internal dialog, chatter, wild ideas," whereas this wiki would be known for refinement, polish, completely thought out ideas.
I'd actually prefer it that way.
Hello, I tried to start a Wikicity by that same title, and was told to come here. You probably can't imagine how much I resent that on one hand. On the other hand, I notice that the demands of working at Wikibooks are making me feel stifled and rebelious. Lol. I have been having a conversation on a yahoogroup http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Beyond_the_Singularity/
I have looked around a bit, Not sure if you are lucid about the term. Some of the people posting even apparently don't get it. The idea here is that if you can ever actually use singularity holomorphics for a technology base, the laws of conservation of mass and energy go out the window, and FTL becomes possible. This has become a new less lucid conversation where people who haven't the first clue about singularity holomoprhics contemplate ignorantly what technology might be like in a world where there are no limits. One application for such a technology is obviously the quantum computer. Such a device would multiply the amount of computational power we can fit into a space by several orders of magnitude. Of course, the premise of encoding information in quantum spin for retrieval purposes may always be science fiction. But maybe not. Anyways, anything >>I<< say on the group is fair game for you to cut and paste. This includes for instance, 22 primary axioms of warp feild theory, or a very agressive argument to show why technology is actually being supressed. Much love, maybe I'll hear from ya.

New Main PageEdit
I have set up a new main page; please take a look at it, at New Main Page, and leave comments here or at my user page. If I hear nothing, then I will implement it about a week from now. Yunzhong Hou 00:32, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
