I was there, and I didn't say or do anything that would have identified 
me as someone aware of extropianism.  (Actually, you'd have been more 
likely to identify me as unfamiliar with the technology, given how much 
help I asked for with the audio.)  My name (Increase Hermes) and avatar 
(greenish-hued female) wouldn't lead anyone to identify me.

I suspect you're undercounting the people who were already familiar with 
our ideas.

It is easy to turn an aquarium into fish soup, but not so
easy to turn fish soup back into an aquarium.
