Transdot appears to be dead. Anyone else know of any slashcode or
slashcode-like sites that deal with issues of interest to extropians?

I'd contribute:


To emphasise the underlying point of all of this again: it's drawing in a bigger community. The mailing list is terrible at doing this past a certain point (already passed), and the same goes for a static web site. I will go out on a limb and say that absolutely all efforts taken by ExI to expand awareness and membership will be largely slow and futile unless matched by some appropriate form of scalable online community component. Such as a slashsite.

But I'd like to hear what the organizers have to say about all of this. They haven't even explicitly stated that expanding awareness of ExI and the community is a priority. In my mind, this is step 1 for any organization trying to get things done, as all else flows from it. But they might have other ideas.
