Yes, I agree. Though I found this conference to be at an equal level of excellance as Extro-3 (if not moreso) a few of the Saturday morning seminars were slightly alienating in their specialization. Though it is probably impossible to please "all the people, all the time," the length of the conference could be extended by about a day. Overall costs would have to be higher of course, but given the amount of signal I was able to consume over the weekend, any cost is too low.

One additional note, having conferences on a yearly basis would be a good idea. As these progresses are coming faster and faster, large groups of extropians becomes more and more essential to our individual well-being...
