Exactly. What we want is for people to get intrigued by the T-Shirt; then they look up Extropian on Alta Vista (first match the Principles 3.0), or Yahoo (Carder-Russell's home page; you can find extropy from here but it ain't easy), or ("Coming soon", no link to or anywhere).

We should try to optimize 'Net searches so that they hit on, which, IMHO, has the best combination of prominence and resources; there's an immediate link to EWF's FAQ, which IMHO is the best introduction, and a link to the Principles, the official definition. However it's missing a link to Anders's Transhumanist Resources, which is the third thing to read.

I advise these courses of action:

  1. Register with Yahoo.
  2. Link to until something's there.
  3. On, near the top, put in a line saying: "New to Extropy? Read <a=FAQ>the FAQ</a>, <a=principles>the Principles</a>, and <a=anders>Transhumanist Resources</a>." -- Eliezer S. Yudkowsky Disclaimer: Unless otherwise specified, I'm not telling you everything I think I know.
