As some of you know, I've been working on a book, The Proactionary 
Principle. This is on hold for a little while, while I work with 
Natasha Vita-More to get The Transhumanist Reader out to publishers. 
In the meantime, a number of people have urged me to release some of 
the ideas in the book. So, I've decided to publish via my blog, 
chapters 2 and 4 of the book.

I will post a new section of chapter 2 "The Perils of Precaution", 
every day or two. Following that will be sections from chapter 4, The 
Proactionary Principle (my alternative to the precautionary principle).

The first in a series of entries of chapter 2 is now available:
