In a message dated 97-01-15 01:06:43 EST, you write:

<< *) Reading science fiction.
*) Eating lunch.
*) Going to scientific conferences.

And not with:

*) Twiddling with protein synthesis.
*) Trying to one-up Lenat's EURISKO.
*) Building Firefly-oid tools for 'Net societies.


Whos designing the tools? The environments? Especially in AR? What about
avatars? digital imaging?
Just what do you think those IBM letters are that are so famous since
Drexler's book?????
Without digital and techno art, who is going to make those worlds and design
those "desginables?"
Practical apllication of art is a foundation of life and functionality as
well as a valuable cultural "show and tell", where Extropic ideas ( and
others) can gain momentum and act as "storyboarding" for reality.

who else GETS this, maybe its just like that NOSE on you face thing.....
too close to see it...

Eli and everyone else, does "ART" still mean (to you) those things that
hang on walls of MOTELS?
Art makes all GUIs possible, all biocscans, all cars,even your can opener is
a design of some sort - ARGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHhh
