What about competition?

It seems to me that Eliezer's main point is that we probably won't run out of fun things to do. The fact that we enjoy competition seems to also be an argument for that.

I'm looking forwards to the next posts on this - I expect the "wirehead problem" to feature in a big place. Are some kinds of fun "ok", and others not? Where do we draw the line?
