I agree with Robin. But even without atatement that I still
*totally*disagree with Chris Hind, IMO Extropians are usually willing to
discuss any creative, productive , futurist topic as long as it is possible
to have a rational conversation about it and learn or share
knowledge..Havelearned moe abou tmany diverse things...
I think more disciplined cohesive topics, rather than diversifying.
...and as an artist ( non Academic) the standard of knowing a medium is
making contribution as well... but .....I want to hear people knowledgeable
discuss AI, nanotech , futurestuff and so forth, that's why i come here....
there are lots of forums for lots of topics... extropians is presumably for
exponents of Extropy. : ) Maybe,Chris you should listen more and learn all
you can 'bout these topics before you criticize,mmmm?....
