Okay, this thread is intended to channel people's skills into the correct roles for furthering the cause. I would like you to post your username and skills if you would like to help in the obliteration of involuntary death. If you cannot think of your skills then just put your username and job and I'm sure that if you ar able to hold down a job then you must have numerous valuable skills. :) I'll go first:

Droplet - Adminstration skills, can work well on own initiative, self-motivated, advanced German, good at thinking up unusual ideas.

Johnny - Carpenter / home builder by trade. Welder / fabricator by hobby. I build aluminum boats and hot rod 4x4's with a real lust for diesel power. You need all of these skills when you own/work on a farm.

Thank you. So I'm guessing that you would do well in roles that are perhaps "technical." Are you good with computers at all and./or willing to learn? I'm also guessing that you learn and organise things pretty well to be able to do that sort of thing.

Thanks Seivtcho. :) I'm sure your computer skills will come in handy and I will be making sure that the people running this place are aware that you are advanced with technology.

Hmm, I'm skilled in mathematics and quantitative analysis. Knowledgable about economics and business. I also do a lot of arts and writing. I had originally thought about turning our subjective experiences with enhancing supplements or drugs into meaningful data. There is a thread recently created on this subject, but I had some more specific ideas than a general database. Although a general database should exist anyway. I think we could also start collecting data pertaining to subjects that I'm not familiar with also. The more knowledge we have about ourselves the better we can move forward.

Link to Thread: http://www.longecity...tical-database/

Im new to forums in general. So navigation and neatly prepare links among other things is new to me.

Wouldn't it be great if we could combine our skills for the common goal, funded entirely by wealthy silent partner fully dedicated to the cause, able to support an entire network of influential people manipulating all sorts of intelligent systems globally with great ideas for the future.

Anyone know someone with a loose billion $ and an easy-going attitude? :D

My skills: Complex information systems programmer/analyst - Actuary and risk assessment - Language and social behaviour analysis - among other self taught abilities including, but not limited to, being extremely proficient at throwing different sized paper balls into small office bins from impressive distances.

Other than being heretic on most subjects, this is the kind of work I do for my day job: http://arxiv.org/abs/1301.4177 or http://arxiv.org/abs/cs/0511057 (each of these two resolves a long standing puzzle of great practical interest that defied many attempts at a solution for several decades).

Very good but what other skills do you have? Any good at organising? People skills? If you still cannot think of what to put, consider your hobbies and the skills you use in those. :)
