I think this is a good idea.

I watched a program on TLC last summer about Cryptography. Romana
Machado appeared on this program. I was struck by the level of
confidence she conveyed. Enough so that I did a search to see if she
had a web page. From her page I found my way to the Transhuman and
Extropian pages. Had it not been for Romana's appearance on that
program I would not be aware of Transhumanism or Extropians.
