A new Singularity-themed social news and discussion community that focuses on topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Biotechnology, and Nanotechnology will open to the public on Monday, January 7th, 2008. Readers of Nested Universe have a special opportunity to join this community prior to its opening. The first 100 people to sign up on the site will become Community Founders, and will be listed on the community founders page. In addition, they will enjoy higher voting power to keep the community focused.
Community leaders such as Dr. Aubrey de Grey (Chief Science Officer of the Methuselah Foundation), Bruce Klein (President, Novamente LLC), James Clement (Execute Director, World Transhumanist Association), Jeff Hall (Executive Director of SENS Research for the Methuselah Foundation) and others have already joined.
The concept of the site is similar to Digg.com, in which the community chooses what news articles and discussions are presented on the site. Users then vote to raise awareness of articles and discussions to other users by voting on the items that are most important to them.
I personally welcome the appearance of a Singularity focused social news community, and wish the founder, Waleed Abdulla, the best. To join the community, please follow this link: http://OnSingularity.com/?code=singulatarian
