Raising Awareness in Action: Changing Minds at Slashdot

It is always very rewarding to see the effects of education and activism for healthy life extension in action. When you have a few minutes today, wander through the comments on the last three items about Aubrey de Grey posted to Slashdot:

June 02 2004: Engineering an End to Aging

December 03 2004: Live to be 1000 Years Old?

January 19 2005: Do You Want to Live Forever?

I think you'll see quite a transformation for the better, on the whole. It goes to show that presenting the science of healthy life extension a wider audience is a very worthwhile activity. Widespread support and understanding is the engine that drives funding for medical research - private and public - over the long term.
