Alex Beam of the Boston Globe authored a rather characteristic filler piece on the Technology Review cover article profiling biogerontologist Aubrey de Grey - sniping at all sides without examining anything so prosaic as, say, the actual science involved. I am singled out as an invading crackpot at one point; I feel I've crossed a threshold of some sort. At least he bothered to e-mail me to verify my name and gender before starting in with the slander.
Still, no such thing as bad publicity. Let the know-nothings snipe and make snide remarks. If we've seen anything, it's that people open to examining the merits of healthy life extension research will hear the message loud and clear through many layers of pro-death (and other forms of) humbug.
