Perhaps this is foolish of me to ask this of you, Chris, but *why*
would you want people to 'flock to us'? Extropy is about *not* flocking,
and extropy is by no means a trend --which is what you frequently seem to
make it out to be. It is not a 'revolution', it is more of a realization.
It is not a faith, it is open-minded optimistic objectivity. I, for one,
don't want to see extropy portrayed as something it is not...and I'm still
wondering about who you mean by 'us'.

Ingredi Externus!
