I have nothing against either the site or logo. However, I do think they
could be used in a more subtle way. Large computer rendered logos and black
backgrounds do have a very 'sci-fi' feel, image is obviously important and I
think it might be best to take a more subtle approach in design.

How about a larger web presence, a drexlian 'fact forum' for extropian ideas
and information. I understand that the Foresight Institute are trying this
with a dedicated browser, we could try something similar using better
established web technologies such as Java.
