Saving is definitely good, can't deny that. However I wouldn't focus all
your efforts onto that route of achieving millionaire status, since it
may take you so long to achieve it that way that the singularity will
be here first. On the other hand there is no guarantee a singularity will

I think everyone should take at least one shot at the "join a hot startup
and get rich quick" route to millionaire status. You may fail, in which
case you can fall back onto the careful saving/investing approach, but
then again it might work out quite well, leaving you enough cash to help
use for other extropian/singularitarian purposes.
