Hello there. I'm in Sydney. Where are you? I'm a newcomer to extropian ideas. I found it through libertarian links and am familiar with the libertarian/legal polycentrism aspect. With the rest, I am still exploring though I have always found the hard AI arguments and the Richard Dawkins-type arguments which underlie some extropian ideas very convincing. My intepretation of extropian political ideas would be an emphasis on legal polycentrism, individualism and respect for science and rationality. Some very Objectivist memes there. If this is what you have in mind, I'd be happy to see an extropian party having an educative influence on Australians.
