I am posting this to the main lists so that you can see the structure of this project. As always, if you have media experience and want to join us, please contact me.
>To: GROUP: T-MAN
>From: Kathryn Aegis <email@example.com>
>Subject: TMAN: DESCRIPTION AND INTRO
>WELCOME TO THE TRANSHUMANIST MEDIA ADVOCACY NETWORK
>TMAN is a gathering of individuals with an interest in transhumanism and a
background in media work. It is not affiliated with any particular transhumanist group.
>TMAN exists to hash out the same issues that media staffs within large
organizations have to deal with, only we are dealing with geographically scattered small groups and individual transhumanists. Topics for discussion can include: ways to get into reporters' rolodexes, memetic strategy, and global networking.
>TMAN does not exist to groom individual media stars, but rather to act in
an advisory capacity for anyone interested in presenting themselves to the media as a tranhumanist.
>TMAN respects the diversity that exists within transhumanist thought, and
therefore will not dictate content.
>TMAN shall act as a catalyst for projects such as: producing reports for
the listserves on media-related topics, helping individuals prepare for media appearances, and developing strategies to overcome some of the objections we have experienced to transhumanist ideas.
