Aubrey de Grey Responds

You can now read biogerontologist Aubrey de Grey's response to the recent Technology Review profile and less than desirable editorials. "Jason Pontin, Technology Review's Editor-in-Chief, and Brad King, Technology Review's Web editor, have invited me to respond to the trio of articles about me and my work that appear in the February 2005 issue of Technology Review with this online-only piece, in addition to a short 'letter to the editor' from me that will appear in the print edition." I think that it hits all the relevant points, and we can hope that the Technology Review will be more circumspect in the future when reviewing the field of healthy life extension - or indeed any other speculative, changing branch of science.
