Well, there are two broad approaches one can take to this -- and they're not mutually exclusive: enter into these institutions to alter their views or opt out of them and let them change as they may. The latter strategy happens often enough and one could say that the Extropian and transhumanist movements pursue both now. There are things like this list, conferences, and the like that are clearly alternatives to mainstream or academic lists, conferences, and the like.
