Sorry, Chris, but how on Earth can you post to a mailing list such as this,
which so overtly recognizes the potential of technology, and come out with
such an incredibly short-sighted view of robotics? "Robots are too clunky
but I'm with you on immortality, uploading, nanotechnology,
bioengineering..." Hello?

Give it a few years and that statement will come back to haunt you.
