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.
