As Damien pointed out there is a history of the Extropian list being
inclined towards the US-style individualistic 'John Wayne'
libertarianism. (Get orrfff my land!).
The newer European list members have a different outlook. As does the
younger generation with its always connected group-think. The
direction of new technology is towards a merging of minds, always
linked, always discussing, wanting to be together, part of the group.
