Just a little reminder that the contest ends tomorrow at 11:59 pm (have
to end it sometime). Right now SIAI will not be getting a huge wad of
cash compared to what they could be getting, so send in those age
guesses. Just think of how easy a way to help the Singularity this is:
all you have to do is tell me Eliezer's age and *I* give SIAI a dollar.
If you know his age and haven't sent in an entry (assuming that you
qualify), I have to wonder what kind of Singularitarian you are. </build
