Intelligent Voluntary Cooperation

More from Allison Duettmann, who is co-writing what looks to be an interesting new book with Mark Miller (who I haven’t seen in years).

If you have the time, the next in the playlist is a salon with her and Aubrey De Grey on the value of life extension, but it’s a little over an hour. Foresight has put a lot of videos on line recently from its Vision Weekend last year.

Existential Hope

I was introduced to Allison a couple years ago, but only briefly. I really only got to know her a few days ago, at a Foresight event on lunar governance. I hadn’t realized that she was so interested in space.

Anyway, she is a brilliant and very charismatic young woman, as this video demonstrates.

The Socialist Temptation

Last time I was in DC, a couple weeks ago, I tried to have lunch with Iain Murray, but it turned out that he wasn’t downtown, but was at home writing a forthcoming book.

It seems a little spendy, though, if you want to get young people to read it (which should be the goal). Maybe they’ll also have an ebook.

If you click here, you’ll tell the publisher that you’d like to see a Kindle edition.
