Thanks Tom, but this description seriously short-changes Natasha's input.
She did far more than add some "nice typographic elements". She created the
main image for the cover, and as Art Director either created or helped shape
many of the layouts in the issue.

This seems like a good time to clarify: I said that there are two people on
the production team. That's the in-house production team who put the issue
together, do all the design, layout, and production. In addition, there are
editors who sometimes help get articles into shape. This time, rather than
"several adjunct editors" let me thank publically the two who helped out:
Eric Watt Forste for co-editing the Advances section, and T.O. Morrow for
his roles both as Politics Editor and Puzzles Editor (the latter,
unfortunately not credited).

I wish there were more editors to help gather and edit material for Extropy.

I intend to continue giving appropriate attention to extropic women as well
as men. I don't believe in affirmative action (i.e. reverse discrimination)
but I do believe in giving attention where it's due.

My thanks especially to those of you who subscribe and thereby support the
existence of the only magazine of its kind. And to those extropians who are
not subscribers I ask -- why not?! (Subscription info is available on
request, or on the ExI web site:

Praise for the magazine is always enjoyable, but I'd also enjoy input on
what you the readers would like to see more (or less) of.
