Are there any books which do describe this well? If not, maybe you
should write one. Academics can hardly be expected to put in forty
years like you did before they analyze things. So its up to people
like you to set them straight.

I am especially interested in this issue because there's a good chance
I'll be a professor of political science within the next two years.

Dear Robin and other fellow Extropians:

If you wish you may consult the MACMILLAN ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE
FUTURE as one of many sources of information. Hopefully, it can be found
in your friendly neighborhood university library.

Please try to avoid going to sleep while reading my contributions to this
two volume set.

If you wish I will be happy to provide you with a listing of other
published materials.
