All the things you mention are currently projects in progress for Extropy
Institute. We are admittedly in the process of reorganizing the way we do
things on both an operational and organizational level. Anyone who is
currently an ExI member, or has been in the past two years, has received a
lengthy members' letter informing him/her of these updates to Extropy
Institute. (If you fit the above criteria and haven't yet received a
letter, it is likely because we don't have a current e-mail address for
you...please send it to me in a private e-mail).

It is unfortunate that Ian Arcantling and others have felt neglected in the
past, and we are working to make sure that it does not happen in the
future. When you look at the success of the Institute in the recent past,
(including a lengthy article on Extropy in Wired, Natasha's consistent
coverage in other high-profile magazines, the addition of Ray Kurzweil to
the Advisory Council, and other such accolades) not to mention the success
of Extro-4, it should be apparent that such progresses will not stop.

Again, I assure you that Extropy Institute is in the process of creating a
large amount of exciting new projects...just wait and see.
