Re: EXI: News items for Exponent newsletter?

I think you already know the items I'd offer for inclusion in Exponent, but
to save you time, here's a draft of some language:


Sarah Marr, Martin Traynor, Nicholas Bostrom and Greg Burch gathered at a pub
in London on November 3, 1996. The group turned up a few beers and discussed
the state of transhumanism and possible new initiatives for Extropy
Institute. Sarah in particular proposed some good ideas regarding
organization of scientific and professional networking. These ideas have
been developed further since and have become key concepts for much of the new
direction being taken by Extropy Institute discussed in this newsletter.

EXpedition 97

An extropian backpacking trip is being organized for the July 4th holiday in
1997. The current plan is for a trip from July 3 to 7 in the Pecos
Wilderness Area near Santa Fe, New Mexico. Greg Burch is coordinating plans
for this trip. Details can be found at the "official EXpedition 97 web

Greg will be updating interested extropians by e-mail, as well as with
regular additions to the web page. If you'd like to stay up to date on plans
for the trip, send an e-mail to him at with the term "EXP97"
at the begining of the subject line.
