I hate to ask a question that sounds this newbieish, having been around the list for three years, but what exactly *is* the difference between Extropians and transhumans? Stating that a "DC transhumanist group" is "70% Extropian" implies a much more noticeable distinction than I've been modeling - but then, having not gotten around to any conventions yet, I wouldn't have any way to notice a division into groups.
