What has any of that got to do with transhumanism or extropy?

Is merely trying (and perhaps succeeding) in having a good,
enjoyable, rewarding life enough?  This reminds me of a sort of
protestantism that equates christianity with going to church on

You are a Director of ExI Greg, and yet you hardly ever post to
this list. The same could be said of Max More. 

Imo the list is the poorer and the less interesting for the absence
of your voices. And the list to me IS the public face of extropy.
