Keith's view certainly does not reflect my own. I see some good 
reasons for going beyond talking to a few other people and attempting 
to get transhumanist ideas more widely and fully appreciated in the 
mainstream. In fact, I think we are seeing that happening. Among 
other reasons, more mainstream acceptance of (or at least 
understanding of) transhumanist idea will influence public policy and 
perhaps the direction of technological advance.

So, in my view, you are *not* in the wrong place, in relation to this issue.
