The extropy list has always been intentionally open-ended as opposed to the
more rigorously controlled, closely moderated and focused groups, some of
which were formed as specifically focused spin-offs from extropy.
Where can we find a list of Extropy focus groups?
You don't find it James, you create it. If you have a particular topic
which you don't know is Extropy related but you think several posters here
might be interested in, post it, see if you get a critical mass of about a
dozen, then create a subgroup, offer to post the results once a week or so
in digest form on the main list. Approximately every four years we could
sustain an ExI-political science group. I have been thinking of sparing the
main list my periodic rant about verifiable elections for instance. I may
decide otherwise, but the old timers have heard it all before. Actually
this time I have some new material and additional mathematical rigor, thanks
to the statistical analysis paper someone posted.
