Possibly self-promoting[edit]

This article, together with articles on "extropy" and "extropianism", seems to be self-promoting. I have found no external references that would not be affiliated to Max More and Extropy Institute. A search on Google News for "Extropy Institute" gave no results. --Dan Polansky 10:26, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Not so You can find the Extropy Institute here [1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.131.148.182 (talk) 23:22, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I find a total of 12,300 mentions on Google of the Proactionary Principle, the majority of which had nothing to do with Wikipedia. I have also located two hostile analyses of it, two neutral definitions of it, and one significant mention of it in a noteworthy news and opinion magazine, Reason. I have added these to the External Links, cleaned up the text to make it clear that it is a description of the proactionary principle, and removed the "primary sources" and "peacock" tags.
