All right, let's get something straight, here, Natasha.

Given the fact that I had no clue until yesterday that this binder even existed, how could my own efforts possibly have discounted it? And what have I said or done to discount the efforts of people already doing media?

These kinds of accusations are not appreciated or appropriate. I wrote this paper based on the encouragement of transhumanists worldwide who are beginning to think about doing media, and in the paper I acknowledge the contributions of the media experts and trainers who helped with some questions I had. It wasn't a secret that I was writing the paper, and I would have included your materials in some fashion had I known about them.

In fact, I am open to revising the paper and redistributing it in another version based on feedback and questions. Should you reach a point of being able to support that rather than attacking it, I welcome your input.

Take care,
