I have just finished a draft of the new version (3.0) of The Extropian Principles. The number of principles has grown from five to seven and I've made some alterations.
Please given me constructive criticism on this draft. The Principles define Extropianism and serve as a focal point for others to figure out what we are all about. Having numerous minds pick it over looking for ways of improving it should produce a better result than if I do it alone.
This *is* a first draft of version 3.0, so there should be plenty of places where the writing could be improved. My goal is to accurately and *clearly* communicate our shared values and attitudes. Another goal in this version is to slightly tone down the style so that it feels more sober, but without losing all of its original spirit.
Feel free to use Foresight Institute's Critserver to make comments, or send me mail, or post to the List. If you send me private mail, be sure to address it to <firstname.lastname@example.org> since I'm in the process of dropping my Primenet account.
