Glenn Reynolds (of Instapundit fame) has been thinking about serious anti-aging science of late. His column at Tech Central Station today is an interview with biogerontologist Aubrey de Grey, who is currently enjoying a deserved increase in the profile of his work. The money quote from the interview: "Q: What do you think is a reasonable expectation of progress in this department over the next 20-30 years? A: I think we have a 50/50 chance of effectively completely curing aging by then." Aubrey de Grey also expresses some interesting views on the role of government in the transition from aging society to ageless society, a period of time that could see great economic and social upheaval.
