If anyone wants to stop over right now, I wouldn't mind getting opinions on if we should go for the Google money (similar to AMEX).

Meeting coming up again soon. If you have any ideas bring them to the meeting. Im thinking maybe appoint a weekly "secretary" who then hands the job off to somebody else at the meeting for the next week. We could use ideas on how to keep the meetings full. I usually promote them an hour ahead of time before each meeting, but some times I dont have time. If you have any ideas for setting up some basic outline to keep people working with that then let us know.

MFURI is taking volunteers, if you want to sign up then come here to get the info. We can plan fund raisers around different venues and concepts, get the myspace one moving along faster, etc...

If you have done some research on MFURI, have any inside scoops, questions, etc.. then let us all know at this meeting.

Its 4pm cst time every monday. Mark it on your schedule and help us spread the word.

Just an announcement about MFURI. An Imminst scholarship fund of $2,000 has been approved for MFURI students doing research in life extension.

Another meeting coming up in a couple of hours.

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend myself - really sorry for that but I really can't help it this time. I'll leave my chat logger open so that I can read over it later and make the notes.

Meeting is coming up soon.

If you are a life extensionist and you want to help extend our life spans indefinently with in our life times then be sure to make a habit of getting in on all the action you can.

Well, I don't have anything special planned for today but everyone is encouraged to stop on over to the Ustream chat and see if we can come up with any new ideas for MFURI. I know they are moving forward with the scholarships and have some new personnel, but that is about it. Maybe we can get Kelsey to show up next week.

Come one, come all, if you want to help make life extension happen in your life time then jump on these opportunities. The weekly meeting is going on again right now. Im surprised that these meetings dont fill themselves every week. Me and Mind and the few who come to these regularily can only generate so much buzz, we need your thoughts and insight and ideas to keep things moving.

Im going to be going over getting involved as a recruiter for MFURI in coming meetings. I was going to go into it a lot more today but some stuff has come up.

Basically we need you to help find students to talk to about signing up for projects and funding through MFURI.

Ill direct interested people to the modules, you take them and if you pass then your an official MFURI recruiter.

There is more lingo to it but Im still learning it. Its something we can go over in these meetings. There are mentors and advisors and everything. Once you pass the modules we contact biology clubs and students and the like and get them interested. We then send them to a page they fill out and Kelsey directs them to the right mentors and senior advisors from there.

We can try different things and figure out the most successful stratagies for getting students interested and contacting schools and getting them set up with info racks and stuff like that.

If you are interested let us know, stop by these meetings, we need you there. Life extension is happening. Its not a matter of it might not happen any more, it is happening, we just need more people to grab onto paddles and help us row this behemoth up this stream to success.

I'm sorry I did not attend, I'd not seen it till I posted here today. You may get a higher attendance by doing a mass PM or ImmInst members, Mind is our mass PM function working yet?

A mass pm might be a good idea. Can you think of anything else that might help highlight stuff like this, promote it, etc..?

This meeting is coming up again today, soon, at the end of this hour, 4pm cst time. Print out the schedule for it and other imminst meetings and post it by your computer: imminst.org/meetings

Today we'll talk about the MFURI interview. We'll also go over this meetings structure again and gain ideas on that.

We are looking for promoters, we have a secretary, might be able to use two secretaries, and we will probably outline a system to pass off the baton from week to week for people to find items to bring or bring items they already have as agendas to the table and head up the meeting.

We will also be going over the MFURI volunteer training course modules link. We'll look for recruits at this meetings, brainstorm on how to find more, and discuss a good way to spread the MFURI modules link, like say a page, a forum topic, a widget, a banner, etc...

If you will be at the meeting then state your interest here to show support for it.

Its at 4pm cst time 10pm gmt time, schedule here: imminst.org/meetings Print that off and post it by your computer, a lot of people are doing that and its improving the meeting attendance, and thats great news because like James Burke says,

"Innovation occurs for many reasons, including greed, ambition, conviction, happenstance, acts of nature, mistakes, and desperation. But one force above all seems to facilitate the process. The easier it is to communicate, the faster change happens."

A lot of people also keep the chat box open when they are online and chat about life extension projects and stuff on and off all day, especially hours before and after meetings. There are a few of us in there now if you want to help throw ideas around and help get more progress to pile up.

starting in ten minutes,

Besides main mfuri points Ide like to discuss possible ways to promote and organize this, if anybody goes there for the discussion.

For example, maybe more, maybe less is good, like there could be a "30 minutes to meeting" bump topic, or maybe a bump topic for all the meetings with the entire schedule in it could be made thats called maybe, "upcoming meeting today" or something. Im pretty certain of one thing though, that if none of that happens, at the least we should redo the intro wording. If anybody wants to make the bump topic content more concise then please do list suggestions and we will discuss whether to implement it or not.

If you want to be on an MFURI meeting team, then list yourself as being in, here, and Ill add you to a weekly reminder list. This meeting is for generating action and ideas for helping further MFURI.

A little collaboration can go a long long ways. Why just a few of us could for example, to brainstorm off the top of my head, save up some money and rent a good old fashioned billboard in the heart of a bio engineering orientated college town. This stuff can be off the top of our heads and be effective and we can get it done.

Imagine what will be done as more small teams like this form and get more into it, research ideas, brainstorm, call in specialists to help with parts of projects and stuff. This reminds me of the Henry Ford quote that said something like, "I didnt have to know a lot about cars and business, I just had to surround myself with a lot of people who did."

We can call a billboard specialist, we can contact bio clubs and sell the mfuri idea to them, there is a lot to be done and we can do it now. I hope to see you in there.

MFURI meeting today. You dont have to know anything about it to join the meeting. If you plan on being there then let us know here. Also give us your thoughts on MFURI here. This will show support for this meeting and encourage more to join. And those more that join just may end up being the next big mfuri volunteers, so show your support and attend this meeting today.

I was just thinking, wouldnt that be great if somebody would do for the MFURI topics what dnamechanic does for the fah topics?

If anybody reads this and is interested then we can talk about it in the meeting coming up here. I would do it but Ive got about a million tasks that Im juggling right now. This would be great for somebody that would like something straightforward to buckle down on to help with.

They could secretary the meeting giving updates, they could make a listing of all the volunteers, they could list their projects and how they are coming along, or whatever. That would all have to be brainstormed up and discussed. Any ideas?

Ive been sending out messages that say the meeting is coming up at the end of the hour, disregard that, its at 4, not 2, I got the hours mixed up. There is chat in there all day long though so if anybody wants to stop by before hand there is life extension chat going on now too. Apparently Ben Best got into a car accident, did anybody hear about that?

This meeting is coming up at the end of the hour. Please attend.

I cannot attend today because apparently you cant mention other internet broadcast channels in ustream or the server bot bans you. It was kind of funny as well as aggravating, somebody said, "4chan is much busier," and then dissapeared and I said "where did you go? what is 4chan?" and I got banned. I hear it takes 3 days for it to clear. We'll see. Rember though, dont write any other broadcast channel names in there at all.

In any case, please attend the meeting and leave notes at the MFURI team meeting topic.

One thing to be discussed is that we need more volunteers to help market this to students. If you want to help with that then fill out this short application here.

They probably have a major problem with spam bots stealing their members. I didnt realize that they would consider doing something like that, I mean, I got tricked, cant others? Also, many people mention things like that accidentally and in other contexts. I have no idea if say, "flyingfish" for example, is another broadcast channel or not. Im going be kind of weary about that. I tried it in another room though. I mentioned "justin.tv" which is another net broadcast channel, and I was immediately banned from that room too. I was talking to a guy, hes the patato chip guy I was talking about, he calls himself "E-tard" of all things, and he said that he thinks it takes about 3 days for the ban to lift or that it may lift if the creator of the room clears out the room and restarts it. Im kind of glad I was banned though, its gotten me back into keeping more discussions going in the forums again.

MFURI meeting in a few minutes, 4pm cst time

Bring your ideas and questions.

Aubrey has 7 approaches to engineering an end to aging. Ive been thinking, why doesnt somebody outline 7 more possible ways to research those things? I would consider support for 100 versions of sens. Is this feasable? Please let me know what you think about this.
