I’m a very slow writer on formal papers, so I probably can’t contribute a paper to your journal or a chapter to your book. It won’t hurt to ask, but the answer is very probably no. I attend few conferences, but again it won’t hurt to ask.
Time constraints prevent me from answering all emails. If I don’t reply to you the first time, you can try again – you may have gotten lost in the shuffle. If I don’t respond to you the second time, give up.
Notes of thanks, and bug reports, are always appreciated even if I don’t reply.
Generally, when I have something to say, I write it up and broadcast it to the world. I usually decline to carry on correspondence with a single person, as this takes just as much time and energy as talking to thousands of people.
Anyone looking to devote a substantial portion of their time or resources to Singularity issues should consider contacting Michael Vassar (email michael no space aruna at yahoo dot com), who is much better at personal networking than myself.
I am not interested in your amazing new theory of Artificial Intelligence unless you can derive the formula for propagating updates in a Bayesian network. I am not interested in your religion. You do not have psychic powers. And that sinister worldwide conspiracy you want to warn me about? I’m probably a member.
I cannot advise you on where to go to college. Sorry.
If after all that you still want to talk to me, email email@example.com.
