Building a Better Future Lessons from 3 Months of Lifeboat Foundation Expert Interviews

Abstract:
Transparency is a second theme that appeared enough to mention here. One application of this idea is the easy transmission of knowledge across domains, countries, and languages. In another light, "transparency" implies knowing what the world is up to in order to make sure we're keeping dangerous experiments and malicious intentions from causing serious harm. It sure is nice to know what the rest of the nanotech world is up to in terms of building off of their findings, but it's also important to understand where the new dangers might have been found, or to stop a team of researchers working on something terribly destructive.
