WTA Back To Backing Life Extension

In the past couple of years, I've felt that the World Transhumanist Association has been drifting away from serious considerations of healthy life extension (and other hard science topics) in favor of more airy subjects like art, religion, and politics. Becoming a sort of higher brow euro-transhumanism, if you will - all style and talk, no substance. It's good to see that, after the recent board elections, brainstorming sessions, and website revamp, living a longer, healthy life is back on the top-level agenda.

Too few groups are currently advocating radical life extension - we need to make much bigger ripples in the media and public opinion. We still have a lot of work to do in order to bring about widespread understanding and desire of healthy life extension - especially if we want to see large scale anti-aging research projects get off the ground within the next decade.
