Max can speak up on this topic, but I never saw any point to getting
transhumanism (or before that extropy) into the main stream.  It was a
discussion list of people who were concerned with the effects of
nanotechnology, cryonics. uploading, and the emergence of vast
computational power on the prospects for AI.

If you want to see the list discussions for the first few years in
fictional form, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accelerando_%28novel%29
