I was first introduced to IEET as an organization at the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology Conference in Tucson, Arizona in 2007. At the time, I was just beginning to understand how possible emerging technologies might effect me in the future, but I was unaware of how to pursue information dealing with near future aspects of nanotech, an how to get myself involved with the community at large. IEET gave me direction via their website, newsletters, and their general out going personalities. Mike Treder and Chris Phoenix both helped me get into contact with other interesting people and organizations, and have continued to foster their relationships with me 3 years after first meeting them. IEET.org has some of the most comprehensive information and articles available concerning a wide variety of topics in the realms of future and ethical technologies by a wide variety of people. Theirs is the first site I turn to when I wonder what my peers are thinking about something new and wonderful! Without IEET providing me with a little direction, I may not have continued with my futurist inclinations and may not have become as involved with the community I love so much today.

What I most enjoy about IEET is their simultaneous upkeep of general public popularity in the articles without compromising the overall scientific / technical quality. I also find their inquisitive polls to be quite interesting since they ask the right questions that have far reaching implications. I look forward to this Institute taking up a brick and mortar office in the near future.

Is there anything more important than our future? This site is the ideal place if you want to get a sense of possible changes heading our way. It is time we leave the "i ll see what comes next" mentality behind us. We have to actively think about the future, anticipate it, steer it, design it ourselves. us. Ranging from culture changing technology, to environmental and natural disasters. If it can happen, we need to think and talk about it before it actually happens or we will be unprepared and ill equipped to handle the situation. If we see these dangers coming, we can steer around them, avoid them or at least negate their effects. IEET is the best place for minds to come together and think about what the human race needs to do to sustain itself, to lead better, happier, healthier and more productive lives. Which systems are broken and which need an update? What does copyright mean for the future of genetics? Is our current political system a dinosaur? What does it mean to be human? What will it mean in the future? What do we want it to mean? If you want to activate that ball of wet, gelatinous matter inside your skull and really put it to work, you have come to the right place.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my thinking about what's going on in the world. What really matters, not just for me personally but for the generations that will follow us.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to give it a broader appeal so that more members of the general public and non scientist can get involved in the debate.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

debate

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very insightful. More than once have i been forced to rethink my initial position on a certain topic because one of them threw out an argument I had never even considered yet. Very horizon expanding and thought provoking material.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

probably do a lot, but it's not about money, it's about people and how to make them see that the world we live in is a really fragile place.

Ways to make it better...

As Co-Founder of the Online Therapy Institute and avid reader and researcher of how technology interfaces with mental health interventions, I love reading the information from IEET. I find their readings to be timely and enjoyable! Their blog posts about robotics, sexuality and Avatar (the movie) have been most intriguing to me.

As an advocate for the safe integration of transformative technology and society, the IEET is an essential nexus for distribution of knowledge, techno-progressive policy, and grass roots organizing. We live in an age of accelerating and disruptive social change. Existential risks related to human discovery, consumption, and evolution pose new socioeconomic challenges and paradigm shifts in civil consciousness. As such, the work and foresight that the IEET promotes is essential for an enlightened and resilient planet.
