Movement for indefinite life extension (MILE) activist contest: How would you spend $5,000 to spread information and raise awareness about people, projects & organizations working toward indefinite life extension?
We won’t be awarding any money through this contest, but we will be awarding a book to the best four: a copy of Human Destiny is to Eliminate Death ~ Essays & Debates on Immortality - Ending Aging - signed copy of the Transhumanist Wager, and Longevitize!
If you were to receive a check in the mail with $5,000 to inform as many people as possible about the desirability and the prospects for indefinite life extension, to get them interested in the people, projects and organizations working directly or indirectly toward indefinite life extension, then how might you spend it? Would you organize a speaking engagement, a small rally, a calculated lobbying trip, some sort of advertisement? What is the best way you can think of to advance awareness of this cause with this amount of money? Think it through, do some research and give us the projected cost on things like potential materials, cost of time, transportation, ad space, rentals, or whatever it may be. Include a description of the steps you would take to spend it wisely - for example, how you would measure success, how you would work to reach demographics you might think are best for the cause, at this time, with a particular project, and things like that.
Send your entry to the message inbox at the MILE – movement for indefinite life extension page (Facebook). Deadline on submitting entries is midnight Central Standard Time (CST), December 19, 2013.
Entries received after the deadline might still make it into the contest but are not guaranteed. Though, we encourage you to send in an entry regardless of whether or not you can make the contest deadline. If an idea comes to you later, if you gain some new insight, or experience, then you can still type it out and send it in.
The editor’s top picks will be posted at the movement for indefinite life extension page. The four entries that receive the most “likes” before midnight CST on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2013 will win a book about the cause.
Selected entries will be archived at immortallife.info. Having archives of ideas to consider is valuable for a variety of reasons. Others might like your idea and want to team up with you to help make it happen. A small group of people can scrape together $5,000 and execute a good project for this urgent life and death quest for life. People can also keep the entries in mind for future reference and for mulling over more ways to get involved.
Whole entries or quotes with attributions from any entries submitted might be used for announcements and future posts at the immortallife.info website, in affiliation with the movement for indefinite life extension.
If you’re interested, start thinking up what your entry might look like now. If you think it would be a worthwhile project, then explain it by writing it out in 300 or more words and sending it in via the movement for indefinite life extension Facebook page message button.
