".though I'm prepared to be corrected on that." *Laughs* Funny stuff.

"Perhaps an explicit disassociation from McKenna.":

I would rather not reference McKenna. We receive a humorous email at least
once a month but no one has ever asked "Do you follow McKenna?"

Killthread suggested. This topic has come up before at SL4.

what extent people have come upon the SIAI-notion with a prior
knowledge of McKenna, presumed we were followers of his views, and
dismissed us without investigation on that basis.

The SIAI's web site looks to me to be pretty clearly emphasizing that it
relies on technological rather than spiritual methods of reaching the
Singularity, though I'm prepared to be corrected on that.
