I sent a "who extropians" message this morning, and found that
Mr. Brin is no longer on the list... unless he's using an alias!

No, I was referring to someone else. But that reminds me of a story.
A teacher was grading papers and found two that were obviously
plagiarized. He went to class the next day and said "I found some
plagiarized papers. I don't want to embarrass you in front of the class,
but you know who you are. Please come to see me in my office this
afternoon." When he arrived at his office, half the class was there.
