Rather than re-post your thoughtful comments, I'll just respond by saying that you are refreshing as cool lemon aid on a hot dry day. Thanks. :-)
Your right about the tryanny of today to stop the tyranny of tommorow. I was using it in jest; perhaps to stir up things a bit more than a rational excursion into libertarian principles - which I otherwise adhere too. I'm a rather mellow fellow myself, but my exposure to the 'S'ingularity so far leaves much to be desired. I'm over-prone to stay in lurk mode on lists I find appealing (like this one!) - but I had to speak my mind. One last thing before I retire for the eveneing:
The Future is up for grabs people! Nothing is written in Stone. It would be very refreshing, to echo Anders sentiments, to see some rational, pro-active descriptives and strategies for evolving into somehting other than a borganism.
