I know there are many requests for support from various individuals and organization, but I encourage my readers to support the Institute for Ethics & Emerging Technologies. Here is the mission statement from their website:
The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies is a nonprofit think tank which promotes ideas about how technological progress can increase freedom, happiness, and human flourishing in democratic societies. We believe that technological progress can be a catalyst for positive human development so long as we ensure that technologies are safe and equitably distributed. We call this a “technoprogressive”orientation. Focusing on emerging technologies that have the potential to positively transform social conditions and the quality of human lives – especially “human enhancement technologies” – the IEET seeks to cultivate academic, professional, and popular understanding of their implications, both positive and negative, and to encourage responsible public policies for their safe and equitable use.
To understand more about their mission and the specific nature of their current fundraiser just click here. For a small $50 donation you get to choose one from among several of the most recent and important books in the genre. If there is anything worth supporting, it is a better future. I encourage you to consider supporting the future. ~ JGM
