Lifeboat Strategy

By James Blodgett
Our human future could be very good or very bad. We might settle the reachable universe, we might live forever, or we might go extinct. What we do right now might make the difference.
Strategy is a plan for accomplishing a goal. This column has suggested strategy that Lifeboat members might use for addressing positive and negative singularities, which I see as Lifeboat’s focus. However, since we are Lifeboat members, we should also think about strategy that makes good use of the Lifeboat ecosystem.
I asked Eric Klien, President of the Lifeboat Foundation, what he thinks is important. His answer is “My current focus is our Facebook group. It is important to me because we have bots that use it as source to create posts on our blog, tweets on Twitter, posts on our Facebook page, posts on LinkedIn, posts on GETTR, and even posts on Parler. So we want people to post to our group, comments on posts to our group, and help moderate our group.”
