The closest to mass-anything I can think of doing is creating a how-to guide for anyone who wants to start up their own advocacy group.

I am a bit tired of advocacy and of talking about bizarre and interesting things like what our attitude and relationship will be to our N upload clones.   I am much more interested in groups, especially with money, to actually tackle and or fund the tackling of various projects essential for progress toward our dreams.  

I think we have succeeded pretty well getting the ideas out into the world (with caveats).  It is now time to show as clearly as we can that it isn't simply the latest variant of sweet smelling smoke blown up the proverbial public undies.   Beware the possibility of Transhumanist Winter.
