Hmmm... I don't want to beat this point to death, but I find this
response a bit disingenuous.

Ben and Eliezer's points of view may be somewhat similar, but I would
say they are LESS similar than those of Eric Drexler and Christine
Peterson, who are both speaking at the Singularity Summit and are both
from the same organization ;-)
