Perhaps instead of creating a seperate moderated list, someone can offer
the service of selecting high quality posts from this list and reposting
it - a "best of everything" list. This may serve people who find this list
too high volume. The authors of the papers cited in the original
invitation, Bostrom, Schmidhuber, and Tegmark, all subscribe to the list
but probably no longer follow it closely because of the volume.
