Which is what keeps me on other lists as I can't be bothered with that
much hubris-building. I am only writing now because my mail filters
managed to stuff up saving a post in the extropy folder and I read the
subject line about Sasha being dead, and I immediately jumped in here to
find out that it was a hoax. And it wasn't. Sigh. BIG sigh.

What's so bad about him? His predatory speculation/investing strategy?
I'm sort of curious, as I had always thought he was one of the few very
rich people who were making any headway as far as doing good goes...
