ExtroBritannia's February event: the "Holborn Agenda"

The next ExtroBritannia get-together is scheduled for Saturday the 17th of Feb, 12,30pm at the Penderel's Oak, in Holborn, London. Everyone welcome.

This month, we're discussing the mainstreaming of the life-extension meme, how to encourage it and what we can do to accelerate the pace of research in the area (such as Aubrey de Grey's SENS. In other words, how do we "sell" indefinite lifespans to "the masses"? How do we lobby governmental bodies for more investment?

After lunch we'll break up into small groups, in order to brainstorm on the subject. After this, we'll mix-up the groups for further brainstorming and then get back together to see what we've come up with. The goal of the exercise is to sketch the outlines of a workable plan of action: the Holborn Agenda.

We will be at the Penderel's Oak from 12.30pm and will stay until late afternoon. Feel free to show up at any time. If it's your first time at an ExtroBritannia event, look out for a copy of Kurzweil's "The Age of Spiritual Machines" at our table. Here's a picture of the book's cover.
