Yes, we will probably be able to use a lot of that when we try to develop some good answers (say next week). What I have in mind is a general FAQ for transhumanism, which will have to be somewhat different from an FAQ for cryonics or extropianism. Part of the result can then also be used to update the extropians FAQ, as Max suggests. For the extropian version we may want to modify some of the answers that deals with the political and economical aspects of transhumanism.
