I'm involved in a local atheist group (Atheists of Norther Colorado) which I've made aware of my attending Extro-4. They are very interrested in what's going to be discussed. They've invited me to give a summary of Extro-4 talk at their first meeting after the conference. They are working on sending out press releases announcing this local review of this conference to all the local media.
Given all the recent Y2K hype, and the Biotech subject this year, I think this could generate quite a bit of local interest both in my summary talk, and in extro-4 itself.
Heck, I also attend the local Universal Unitarian church and there seems to be much similar interrest there also; asking me to hold a special meeting or class where I present extro-4 info.
Anyway, I'm surprised how all this spontaneously comes together and how many diverse organizations are all interrested in hearing talks about this kind of inspiring stuff. I just thought I'd spread the idea of how easy and exciting this has been for me, in case there are others of you out there involved in any kind of local organizations where you live that might be interrested in hearing about this kind of stuff and helping to fan the fires that are bringing us the future.
Looking forward to Extro-4!!
