Subject: The Life-Extension Meme
Date: Sun, 2 Jan 2000 09:52:59 -0600

I just noticed something that struck me as an optimistic note for
cryonicists and life-extensionists in general.  MSNBC online maintains a top
10 list of their articles.  That is, at the end of every article readers are
asked to provide a rating from 1 to 7.  Currently, the #1 article is titled,
"How long will you live -- Really?".


And yesterday, I was standing at the info desk in Barnes & Noble waiting my
turn behind a gentleman who appeared to be in his seventies looking for a
book on life-extension.  It seems to me this meme has really taken off over
the last couple years.  No big surprise, I guess, with the string of
breakthroughs and the subsequent media coverage and the many books written
on the subject.  I'm just pleased with the increased potential for interest
in and acceptance of cryonics.

Best regards,

Scott Badger
