Perhaps we could ask Greg to specifically identify these 'crazies'? But
this wouldn't be entirely constructive. Hm. How many writings on the
currents of the more near future are there? How many people are writing
about do it yourself synthetic biology and genetic engineering, how
many are writing about cognitive augmentation for your own time, etc.?
Very little, from what I have seen.

Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh! Excitement. Heh! A Jedi
craves not these things. You are reckless!"
