SPACE Colonization essay

Since we seem to be going far afield of Extropianism/transhumanism (how to
achieve, what it would be like, etc.), I think it might be good to start a
with my essay "For a Free Frontier: The Case for Space Colonization." It's at
_The Free Radical_ web site:

Check under backissues. I offer the essay up for comments both critical and
laudatory, and expect more of the former and none of the latter.

I also realize some might argue that humans will not colonize space because
the singularity will be upon us before it really gets under way. So be it,
though the singularity itself is a topic for debate. Also, if said singularity
occurs after some colonization takes place, it might be less widespread
because of this. (Another topic to discuss?)

I look forward to your comments.
