What’s the Deal with Robin Hanson?

No matter how many times Robin Hanson is shown the problems and weaknesses in his claims, he never responds to or even acknowledges those points.

Jason Malloy sums up the problem quite efficiently. I rather think this is a problem with all sorts of extropian thought: it’s really nothing more than romantic fantasies dressed up as hard-headed rationality and rigorous extrapolation.
