And *ten* years ago, in Extropy #15, the Future Forecasts section
"compared educated estimates of future breakthroughs by Gregory
Benford, Alcor's Steve Bridge, Eric Drexler, FM-2030, Mark Miller,
Max More, and Nick Szabo."
I don't have the text handy on computer (but will eventually extract
it from old floppies). Anyone have the time and inclination and the
issue to type this up for the list?
I recall that Nick and I were relatively conservative in projections,
while Eric was very gung-ho.
