Default Re: ANI, AGI, ASI Grey Goo Forums to Ask Questions

Didn't read the entire thread. But, my opinion is that you're maybe selling yourself short. Why not...

GO TO THE SOURCE? You might be surprised at who you can get at.

I've done this several times, going through proper channels I was able to sit down with them and pick their brain. People love to talk about what they're MOST interested in. Attached one as a consultant. Got their book rights. Etc.

Be willing to fly to meet them if you want them as a consultant/rights of some kind. Their interest to get on the phone with you in order to set a meeting will likely be determined by your passionate email someone passes up the chain to them.

PLUG: For CAA, they bring in expert speakers for their writers to meet and greet and keep in contact with. Idk if other agencies do that. That's one way huge agencies help their writers.

POINT: I'm not relying on the internet for super insidery intel (CIA/NASA/DARPA/FBI/LA PD Homicide... whatever else.)

But, I suppose it depends on how much intel you need...

If you need science help this is a great place to go http://scienceandentertainmentexchange.org

absolutely. this was a "terminology" answer that i needed. so it wasn't a deep dive into new tech i didn't know anything about. but these sites are pretty awesome, you get to some pretty tech savvy people who are in the industry.

but yeah, if i need to go deep on tech i would definitely like to speak to the real thing.

Tinlizzie, thanks for the link. appreciate it.
