ExI hasn't done as much this year as I'd like to see, but it's certainly done more than that. If we could afford a marketing director, you certainly wouldn't get the job. :-)

As I said, we'd all like to do much more. We are more limited than ever by having NOT ONE paid staff member -- not even someone to work on projects part time. Everything is done by volunteers when they have time.

In the year ahead, I look forward to making our fourth conference a reality, and making it the biggest, best, and most informative and influential ever. I look forward to the development of the NodeNet and, under the new hand of Sasha Chislenko, I look forward to the expansion of material on Extropy Online. As volunteer energy allows, I also hope to see considerable development of the web site.
