Spinoff Survey

Spinoff survey

17. What’s happening in your world? Are there any stories, ideas, trends etc. you think we should be covering?

Lots.
Recovering from the Kaikoura Earthquake.
Following AI and Existential risk communities internationally.

Trends/Ideas:
Resilience/ preparedness for major disaster – everyone slowly building the habit of maintaining at least a month’s supply of dry goods in the house (by rotating the newest to the back and the oldest to the front, every time – no exceptions).
Having head torches for every person in the house.
Having warm clothes and wet weather gear for everyone in a known easily accessible place.
Having some sort of tool to dig a long drop.
Having matches in a waterproof container (at least 4 boxes), and some fire starters.
Having a tool to cut firewood.

Becoming aware of the exponential trends in technology and information that will completely change and dominate our systems in the coming decade.

Accepting exponential expansion in diversity.

Accepting that we must become a global cooperative if we are to survive.

Learning about the systemic failure modalities for scarcity based market systems (money and finance) when faced with universal abundance made possible by fully automated manufacturing.

The failure of economic systems to adapt to exponential technologies.

The misunderstanding of evolution as competition, rather than seeing that evolution of complex systems is predicated on cooperation (competition drives systems to sets of local minima on the complexity landscape).

I have many more – if you are interested. tedhowardnz@gmail.com
