Wow, great, you did it again :thumb:

The earlier start time did produce to many complaints to apply again, e.g. in an alternating fashion?

I have asked the last couple of guests about the earlier start time (I give them the first choice 3:30 vs. 6:30pm). They said the later start time worked best for them. So in the future I will continue to strive for some earlier start times, but the guest will have the final say.

That is probably the best way to do it. The guests are nice enough to spend their time to answer our questions, so allowing them to pick the time that works best for them is only right I think.

Yep, agreed, didn't look at it that way yet, but very sensible indeed!

Yeah, I have to second this. It was especially cool that Aubrey was there (in the sjayo chat). I could only read the log, since the time doesn't work for me, but it's great that these things are happening. My hat's off to Mind; good job, man!

I've got it and Darwin's Spectre sitting beside me to flip back through before the chat. Hopefully finals will allow me some time to go through them.

Sadly, I won't be able to attend.

If you'd be so kind, please be sure to grill Dr. Rose on some of the more controversial statements he made in his SENS Conference lecture, since I won't be able to do so in person!

Can someone please help me? I've never used vista before and it's not allowing the activex install to chat.

The guest showed up. AFTER the host was gone, and half of the people had also left. So I tried to play host and ask as many question as I could. Now is there someone who knows how to get a transcript of this discussion for the purposes of posting?

He also said that he would do any follow up questions and gave an email : mrrose at uci.edu

So there was no moderator for this one? I thought Technosophy and/or Bruce was going to be the moderator. Sorry I missed it, I had a Christmas party to go to.

It requires that someone in the chat room was using irc and had logging turned on.

I was ready and waiting. After 45 minutes I considered it a no-show and logged off to get done with a pile of work staring me in the face.

These sorts of things are bound to happen. I'm sure that Michael Rose can stop by again for a sunday chat some other time.

Dr. Rose might return for a more in depth chat in 2008. Hopefully, technical problems will be resolved the next time around.

Is there any chance that Dr. Rose will be chatting in 2008?

I recently contacted Dr. Rose and he agreed to a future guest appearance on the Sunday Evening Update. He wishes to wait until his "Making SENSE" paper appears in Rejuvenation Research, so everyone will have a chance to review his current thinking on the subject of engineering an end to aging.
