A better FAQ to point people to would be helpful. Of course most people
here don't have the cycles to devote to that. Maybe the Extropt
Institute needs to push for more funds/volunteers/full-timers to do such
things more thoroughly. There is much good there now but more would of
course be helpful. Barring that, what educational posts we do here
should also be gathered in one place outside the archives to serve as a
possible set of additions to such a FAQ. I am thinking of something
like the site but for Extropian material.
