Video From the Immortality Institute Conference

Randy Wicker, an interesting character, to say the least, has posted video of the Immortality Institute conference this last weekend.

On November 5,2005, one-hundred and fifty Immortalists gathered for their first conference at Georgia Technology Institute in Atlanta, Georgia, to hear visionaries outline how biotechnology, nonotechnology, cryonics, artificial intelligence and computer science could enable human beings to become the masters of their own fates.


The announcement of the first $1,000,000.00 donation toward establishing a scientific prize for extending longevity in mice was a historical landmark.

The most prominent speaker, Aubrey de Grey, Ph.D., Research Associate, University of Cambridge-SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) outlined a detailed plan for curing human aging.

I had the opportunity of spending several hours with Dr. de Grey and two interviews with him will be interspersed with other highlights videotaped during this conference.

Depending on your system, you may have to download and rename the video file before you can play it.
