I think that the problem is that there is a huge gap in most peoples minds
from the computers they are using to realising that that technology is
growing exponentially and what that will lead to.
As my job mostly is about talking to "the general populace" I am currently
developing a Website to fill that gap. (and the extropy transhuman
web-designguide i have suggested will also be avilable on it.) It will be
called "Forward" and will apear in a month or two.
