Yes, a few months ago I had an interview with CBC (via phone)
regarding uploading and the extropian view of how future mechanics will help
humanity rather than hinder it. It appears that extropy *is* beginning to
be its own entity rather than being dubbed as "...a spinoff of objectivism"
or "neo-fascist" as has been the case before. It is particularly
interesting that CBC itself has taken an interest, considering that it is
the only national network that is the earpiece to the Canadian government.
I look forward to seeing how your segment is received on "Big Life".

Ingredi Externus!
