[ExI] Is the ExI email list slowly dying out? And if so, what can be done to reverse such an outcome?

Just my 2 gwei:

I joined the list coming from the cryptocurrency side. I'm an ethereum developer and extremely interested in a money system that has emergent properties that isn't controlled by a state. The writing is on the wall that this isn't sustainable.

I was kind of looking for discussion around that. This seems like an email group that talks about topics but I was interested in creating DAOs for more action around real issues. I'm not sure why we don't create an Extropian DAO and start funding things we care about directly.

Otherwise this email thread will just be talk. We have the technology to privately organize and do the capital financing necessary to push the Extropian narrative.

Not sure why it's not being done.

I realize the list has it's periodic ups and downs, which includes golden ages (sort of like a civilization, come to think of it). But I still feel like it is in a long-term decline, compared to the past. I just don't want to see it die a decade or so from now, with barely a whimper.
