"Life does not cease to be funny when people die, any more than it ceases
to be serious when people laugh."
--G. B. Shaw
"And if I laugh at any mortal thing,
'Tis that I may not weep."
--George Gordon, Lord Byron
"No one is more profoundly sad than he who laughs too much."
--J. P. Richter
"Accelerating technological progress (Extropic Phase TransitionT) is the
only strategy that leads to long-term success."
"In a real system that is going to be used by real people, it is a mistake

Cyberspace may indeed change humanity, but only if it begins with humanity
as it really is. So, get real."
