I periodically get email from folks who, having read "Accelerando", assume I am some kind of fire-breathing extropian zealot who believes in the imminence of the singularity, the uploading of the libertarians, and the rapture of the nerds. I find this mildly distressing, and so I think it's time to set the record straight and say what I really think.
Short version: Santa Claus doesn't exist.

EDITED TO ADD: don't get your hopes up, this is pretty weak stuff.
