I've still got the Porterian message with the term "Yudkowskian
Singularitarian" in it. I think I've used "John-K-Clarkian" on at least
one occasion. I wanted to use "Crockerian" once, but it just didn't
adverb properly. Likewise, I'm afraid that "Morian" is impossible and
"Sandbergian" sounds like a Jack Vance city. Alas for some of the Great
Ones, "Moravecian" and "Lenatian" just don't sound right. Yet,
"Vingean" and "Hofstadterian" are common. I wonder how much success in
life is determined by such considerations?
Maybe we could use other endings:
Alas, More and Crocker are probably doomed.
