We're looking for some volunteers to help with a conceptual project that may evolve to something important for all ATS members, and perhaps even make a difference. We've been discussing a project that is now ready to find some members who can help with the "leg work" of investigating the possibilities of it becoming a reality. This will also be used to reinvigorate the use of the DISC Forum (Deny Ignorance Steering Committee) as this is a perfect project for such a group. Here is what we're looking for. 1) Members with legal connections and/or background. Especially where intellectual property and the publishing industry is concerned. 2) Members with writing experience both professionally, or degree-related in their education. 3) Members with connections to or a background in the publishing industry, especially non-fiction. 4) Members with experience in the philanthropy field, or connections in the charity/non-profit world (this is not for fund raising, but fund-giving). This project may result in something for sale, and all proceeds would go to an appropriate charity that fits with the motto of "deny ignorance". So your work would be purely volunteer, however, our goal is something the entire community can be proud of. If you're interested, please contact me via U2U or e-mail to skepticoverlord@abovetopsecret.com (if you're reading this and not currently a member), and we'll begin getting organized.

I will help as I can. I don't have much to offer that meets the criteria of your list, however. I do have some experience in graphics, web design, art, and I am a dedicated researcher when given a topic, I can usually find information on it. I'm not accredited or degreed, however.

Yes, yes, yes and yes.

But little time or energy to offer for 90 days or so. Happy to help in an advisory capacity, not writing/editing/designing/packaging.

Good luck to ATS and DISC with the publishing project.

Incidentally, is the focus of benevolence in any way geographic (eg where the majority of ATS members are at) or more global in scope? How do you select a worthwhile charity in keeping with the ATS mission?

This one comes to mind www.literacy.org... What better way to promote denying ignorance than through literacy efforts?

Just a thought on charities...
Pick a homeless shelter in like NY or someplace big where it will actually get used and not funneled into some crap and ends up in a pocket.

I might be interested in the writing part. I'm not a professional, but I've been published in small things. I'd like to know more details about the writing, for sure.

I would love to help out in any way possible! I enjoy writing non fiction, although nothing I have posted in ATS because most of my work, is still a work in progress. I'm good at designing things. And also good at art.
I think that a good charity that would support the "Deny Ignorance" motto would be something along the lines of what SO said. Literacy. Education for children came to mind: (some sites below)
net aid
hope world wide
Even if I'm not chosen to help, I feel that this is going to be a great project!

I'm a writer, albeit not professionally, but I have written for several local underground newspapers, along with professional business websites and school newspapers. Count me in if it comes to it.

This project may result in something for sale, and all proceeds would go to an appropriate charity that fits with the motto of "deny ignorance". So your work would be purely volunteer, however, our goal is something the entire community can be proud of.





Why doesn't ATS create its own Non-profit 'charity' organization dedicated to the motto "deny ignorance" and help fund other projects and pursue the site's goals and educating people of the truth. I am an executive of a corporation that I have helped found, and I am somewhat knowledgable as to how to create such legal non-profit entities and how to help them progress. I don't quite see why the profits would go to another organization outside of this one, when there are still goals to be met and pursued. With the money gained through the "sales" of whatever it is you are planning on selling combined with donations or whatever else, this group could make a significant differance and pursue as well as meet goals that it has or may set.

I have had very similar personal ideas and have even been working on a project prior to coming across this site that would be set up close to what I have stated above, and it would fund actual trips to gather information and meet with people who possess a good deal of knowledge or information about certain topics which would essentially be the same as those discussed on this site. I had planned on going much deeper than even what i had depicted here to 'dig up' various information and 'truths' and feel it would be quite benificial to the same causes that this site seems to have.


I am very new to this board and site, but find it to be very intriguing. If any of my ideas or suggestions contradict the ideals that this group and site is based on I appologize.

I look forward to hearing your response. Good day.
