I concur that Brian Atkins is looking for contributors to the field, rather
then just yes-men, on the list and, perhaps, is disappointed that not enough
academics post to the list here. For pure academic concentration, I think the
Everything List run by Wei Dei, is probably the top. They are pretty
esoteric, form my aspect, and are focused mostly on the Multiple World
Interpretations. But its not dedicated to transhumanism or extropianist
thinking at all.
