Database of Experts, Advocates and Volunteers
LongeCity has been 'the' forum for information exchange on
life extension for over a decade. Over the years, many of the 'who is
who' in the scene have visited the site, newcomers have used the site to
educate themselves or as a springboard for new projects, and many initiatives
and rallying efforts have brought people together.
However, in all that time we did not have a well-coordinated approach to
networking. From time to time different efforts to reach out and connect
were made but there were few tools in place to support such
initiatives, and they had to start from scratch each time. There was no
database that can be searched for the right skills set, no 'register of
interests' that can be used to connect volunteers around the globe...
until we realized that the simplest and most effective way of
creating and maintain such a register was lying right in from of us in
our database of users.
To leverage that resource and turn it into a powerful tool for
networking, we have added new data fields.
You can find these by here
under 'volunteering'. As a privacy protection measure, the entries in
these fields will be *viewable by members only* -at the very moment, you
can only see your own entries.
Please update your profile here:
if you have ever shared information this kind of information elsewhere
on LongeCity, (i.e. in a forum thread or in a PM to the Members
Secretary/Volunteer Coordinator) then please take a minute to enter the
information in this register. We will look at doing some conversions
manually, you yourself know best whether the info you supplied is still
This initiative is still very much in its infancy and we are looking forward
to suggestions over the next few weeks and months how to make this into
a powerfully effective networking tool.
