I find it curious that "moral philosophy" is not on your list. You
also don't mention neuroscience. Nor psychology, for that matter.
Nor memetics. Hmm. Since most of the things that I spend most of
my time thinking about lately are not even accounted for in your
pigeon-holed caricature of extropian thinking, I think I'll skip
your poll, okay?

It's okay, though. I'm not an Extropian heavyweight like James Rogers, so
I'm sure I won't be missed.
