Dr. Beardy McSkinnydude talks about YOU

I need a life-extension icon. I'll use Shatner for now because he's a rather spritely 75-year-old, isn't he. (Yes, he's only 50 in this picture, but do you deny that he's still got it?)

From BoingBoing, some Aubrey de Grey stuff: a brief text interview, where he interestingly pooh-poohs the effectiveness of CR in humans, and the full video of a presentation he gave about how he'd like to fight aging, starting with the prerequisite fight to raise awareness of aging as something that can be fixed.

It's frustrating that my plan to be rolling in ca$h money by now hasn't really panned out because I had been planning from the start to pour a lot of it into things like SENS and the MPrize. I'll keep trying.



It seems that "life extension" is the term on the rise for this whole thing. I like it better than "immortality", which has the air of divine unattainability baked into it, or "clinical immortality", which sounds too, erm, clinical. I'll have to go adjust my LJ tags to match, sometime.

Can't we just have plastic surgery to extend our HP meters?
