I've compiled a list of my most bizarre or original postings and I hope
some of these topics arise again for further debate. I will be merging the
information relating to these topics gathered in the past to my website
which is currently heavily under construction and will be dedicated (in
Wired magazine style) to the ultra high technologies of the future. I will
repost any of these previous posts for newer list members who weren't
around for the first round of debate. Not all of these are posts though,
some are just concepts occasionally meantioned within a thread or two and I
may not find them again. Please browse the topics and see if anything here
interests you.
