I was a bit slow in responding, so I'm happy to see that there are
people who have come up with the same idea independently (shows that
it is likely viable). I would be very happy if such a list could be
set up.

exi-euro would fit in with the other local mailing lists.

A small note: it might be a good idea to include some of the
distinctions between transhumanism in general and extropianism in the
list charter; many europeans have somewhat different views on politics
than americans, and may believe you have to be a libertarian
market-worshipper to join the list. It is a good idea to dispell that
misconception from the start, so that people do not think it is just
for extropians.

It is cheering to see that so many have gotten interested in setting
up an european transhumanism network.
