Impressive, very impressive.
Its impressive that you've organized so much information. I've only skimmed over the threads after reading your initial post, Welcome to the
Unpossible Future... The AGI Manhattan Project. and haven't visited any of the links. To examine them all and to then try to make sense of it would
take months if not years, just as you have done. I will make a few comments though.
First, without supporting documentation and such, some of what you're saying will be perceived as speculation, sometimes wild speculation, and
personal opinion. So I think it important that you clarify which is fact and which is an opinion.
Second, while there is much ado about the whole lot of it, and the subversive, negative aspects, and villian-like characteristics, and characters, I
think its also plausible that some of the people and their intentions have good intentions, meant to serve a good purpose, through admirable means,
etc. I think its important to recognize those distinctions, rather than throw out the baby with the bathwater, and speak out against everything,
attack all their efforts.
Technology is here to stay, its not going to go away, its important to understand that, and rather than fight all technological development, make the
distinction between what is good and what is bad. Where potentially detrimental aspects and abuse is found, sure, speak out and warn against it, but
you should also do more. Speak about ways and means of protection, prevention, repealing poor policy, and point out what improvements are needed,
On that front, I think its important to avoid the use of violence in retribution, and using web-bots and things of that nature to poison the
effectiveness of Google's as well as others, and the government's data collection, including all the social networking sites, Facebook, even ATS,
and cloud computing, to attack those systems could be considered cyber-terrorism and computer intrusion, you could find yourself in a lot of trouble.
Don't go there.
And to get to the point, the real reason I decided to respond. I think you should compile your work into a comprehensive book before pursuing a movie.
In writing your book, given the narrow perspective of you being a single individual, toss your thoughts on the individual issues out to the community
one at a time so as not to overwhelm everyone, and hear the arguments. You'll probably find that some of your writings might need to be corrected or
otherwise improved upon. Getting input from others before you put your pen to paper for the last revision is most important, and where applicable,
include the involvement and content provided from those participants.
Aside from ATS, which has a certain notoriety about it, there are writers workshops filled with arm-chair editors willing to pick apart your
materials. In preparing your book, if a movie is your ultimate goal, you can find editing tools to simultaneously develop your work in the form of a
Lastly, I will refer you to a website who's purpose is to help fund small business ventures. Interestingly enough, there is a good level of interest
and funding that takes place in regard to book-writing and movie development. I haven't been a long time user of the site but I did review the
activity for most all the projects listed on their site a couple weeks ago.
Participants partake in supporting the projects voluntarily, not as investors hoping to cash in, although you might find some parties willing to offer
their support through various other ways and means, beyond, outside the realm of the website's workings as well. On the website itself, people pledge
their donations in exchange for all sorts of rewards. In the case of a book or movie, it might be in exchange for a signed copy of the book or CD, a
meeting with the author/producer, a ticket to the premier, or in lieu of any piecemeal rewards.
