Advanced Nanotechnology Is Coming!

Lifeboat Foundation

Posted on July 27, 2006

Many people wonder if advanced nanotechnology will become feasible, with its many interconnected layers of promise and peril. The folks at the Lifeboat Foundation (www.lifeboat.com) are convinced that with so many people working to make sure the "promise" comes true, that it is time for at least a few to make sure the "peril" doesn't happen.

With the help of nanotech experts Robert A. Freitas Jr., Mike Treder, Chris Phoenix, Philippe Van Nedervelde, Michael Vassar, and others, they have developed, among other prophylactic measures, a proposed NanoShield (link) and they would like to do more.

Nearly 200 of the best minds on the planet are working on their Project of Hope for the 21st Century. These brilliant minds include Lemelson-MIT Prize winner Ray Kurzweil and Nobel Laureates Sir Clive W.J. Granger, Wole Soyinka, and Frank Wilczek.

These experts are helping churn out critical reports such as: Panoptic Smart Dust Sousveillance which shows how we can have technologically-enabled "radical reciprocal accountability" and transparency; a report on anti-viral technologies requested by Richard Branson for his Virgin Atlantic airline; and a BioShield report whose goals have been endorsed by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, Sun Cofounder Bill Joy, and Futurist-Inventor Ray Kurzweil. You can see these reports at Smart Dust, anti-viral technologies, and BioShield.

The Lifeboat Foundation needs to grow so more people know about its activities, and so concrete actions can be completed based on these critical reports. We need to do more than simply talk about "peril," we need to start taking action now!

The Lifeboat Foundation needs more support in both time and money. For the price of a cup of coffee a day you can join a select group of visionaries to help ensure humanity safely adopts the increasingly powerful technologies of genetics, nanotechnology, and A.I. robotics, with as little disruption as possible.

About Lifeboat Foundation:
The Lifeboat Foundation is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, dedicated to ensuring that humanity safely adopts increasingly powerful technologies, including genetics/biotechnology, nanotechnology, and robotics/AI, as we move towards a technological singularity. Lifeboat Foundation is pursuing a variety of options, including helping to accelerate the development of technologies to defend humanity, including new methods to combat viruses (such as RNA interference and new vaccine methods), effective nanotechnological defensive strategies, and even self-sustaining space colonies in case the other defensive strategies fail. We believe that, in some situations, it might be feasible to relinquish technological capacity in the public interest (for example, we are against the U.S. government posting the recipe for the 1918 flu virus on the internet). We have many of the best minds on the planet working on our "Project of Hope for the 21st Century"!
