  1. Sp4: Its titillating but is this really what we should be sending astronauts into space to do? Though I suppose once you are in space it doesn’t cost extra.

  2. Sp6: Rushkoff extrapolates a whole lot about an entire class of people based on the fact that five guys asked him some questions. People who work in finance deal with risk; it shouldn’t be shocking that they think about risk outside of finance. And just because someone is preparing for the worst doesn’t mean that they want the worst or even think that the worst is likely to happen.

    Also, I’m not sure that I see some grand connection between one rich guy who wants to build a bunker in case the sh*t hits the fan, another rich guy who wants to colonize Mars, or another rich guy who wants to upload his consciousness tot he web.
