* Articles (recommendations, reviews)
* Multimedia
* Websites (recommendations, reviews)
* Editorials
* Singularity actvism (activities, status of active projects, project needs,
requests, donor/volunteer thoughts, tracking the Singularity movement's
* Thoughts from readers
* Specific resources (evidence for accelerating change, new computing

* Mailing list posts/discussion
* Quotes
* Journals/newsletters
* Books (recommendations, reviews)
* About SIAI
