Absolutely. Development of a progressive, step-wise program to achieve that
would be a good beginning, with the aim of making Extropianism almost
mainstream. A good first step would be the identification of
features that causes people to place Extropianism on the boundaries, and
attempting to address these.

Note that in no way am I advocating a watering down of the ideas.

Some advertising and public-relations know-how would probably not go astray
here! (Greenpeace is a good example of an organisation that managed to
transform formerly 'whacky' ideas into the mainstream.)
