A moron here in Sweden accused us in the Swedish Transhumanist Association
to be baught by the biotechnological establishment, go figure. Where is that
money? We should be so lucky!
... And that's an interesting problem. Why aren't we baught by "The New
Economy"? Why don't the industry that we protect invest in us? I think that
is because transhumanism has utterly failed to show a professional face to
the industry. You don't invest in geeks, geeks cannot defend you.
