Much more interesting would be compiling an age histogram, and compare
that to the average. Mark Gubrud on nanotech (apart from raising the usual
accusation of us being a cult) has described the average Extropian as a
single male, in low technical profession.

I don't think that's extremely accurate, but I suspect that bias is
present in the *online* Extropians, which of course suffers from the
self-selected bias in comparison to people subscribing to the Extropian
