A blog is nice because you can duck out of sight when the time seems right. Well, it may be that time for some of you, who will want to keep a sheepish low profile this time, while others step forward to speak up.
Because now it’s time for people to proudly proclaim which “proxy power” groups we decided to join, during the recent holiday season. Our chosen ways to help save the world... by the relatively simple convenience of helping others to save it for us!
(For those of you playing catchup, drop by my popular article on Proxy Power ... and remember, part of your 49 cents will go to good causes!)
So, which organizations met your personal criteria? Did you join enough (at some crossing point of passion and disposable income) to help you to feel that the world will be better, because you are in it? A world more worthy of your grandchildren?
Oh, it needn’t just be charities and do-good causes! I have urged any and all who feel a bit inclined, to subscribe to ANALOG Magazine for example, if only to help boost real science fiction at a time when it is sinking next to the thrashing behemoth of fantasy.
Along those lines, also look at plans for Baen’s UNIVERSE Magazine, the new online SF venture I’ll help to launch in June. Keep this one simmering and then join up when the time is right!
Finally, if you want to stay up-to-date on cutting edge stuff and genuine techno-optimism, see the people at the Accelerating Studies Foundation: These are the smartest of the “extropian” singularity guys. Their newsletter is terrific and you’ll be entertained.
All right now, it’s proxy power time! Step on up and tell us who you’ve “hired” to help save the world.
