|Bracing against the wind|
Sunday, April 27, 2003
Some have called me an "extropian" or "transhumanist". So naturally I surfed around and found that, yes there are a bunch of people out there who think similar things (of course... there always is).
The difference is that I'm practical about it. I can't find a single "extro" who is serious about advancement and evolution of the species. They're all about cyborgs and nanotech science fiction that's "gonna happen" like a million years from now. It's crap. How about working on the minor advances right now that are needed to push extropy?
I guess I could consider myself a "practical extropian", if that's not a contradiction. A practical agenda involves real social activism, technology investments, and political lobbying... not stuck-up, pie-in-the-sky, mental-masturbation circle-jerks.
