For the luvva dog, man, where's your google-fu? Mr. Clark has been
posting to the extropy list on and off about related topics since at
least the mid-'90s. His comments are cited extensively in my book THE
SPIKE (both the 1997 and 2001 editions), the first book specifically
dealing with the singularity. (He is cited there under the nym
"Pelagius"--but his identity is made clear in the notes.)
