If I had nanotech I'd do two things relatively soon.

  1. Upload. (thereby making time irrelevant)
  2. Leave. (so what if it takes a long time to cross interstellar space...just slow down my "clock-cycle")

Were there others with similiar ideas as mine (it COULD happen) then humanity would disperse. A dispersed target is extremely difficult to destroy.
