It is really almost 2000 pages.
Extropians gets one mention, Minsky gets mentioned twice, Vinge 3
times, libertarian 4 times, upload 4 times, Moravec 8 times,
transhuman or transhumanist 14 times, Kurzweil 42 times, Hughes 49
times, Dawkins 124 times, memes 133 times, Hitler 289 times, AI 314
times, Nazi or Nazis 728 times, Jewish 1210 times, God 1694 times.
Fortunately, I am not mentioned nor do the stories say he had a failed
lottery ticket in his pocket.
Attention, even posthumously is a powerful driver.
