It's nothing major but our UK street paper The Big Issue was running a piece on organ donation and the long waits that patients face on the transplantation lists. I have sent a letter to draw attention to the New Organ Prize over on M Prize.org. It will hopefully give people inspiration and hope on the upcoming technologies but also I'm hoping that people take a look at other parts of the site and maybe get interested in life extension.

The message may not even get printed but I'll let you know here if it does. At least I treid and someone had to read it. :)

You could always try. Who knows, they may consider a feature on life extension if they're interested enough. :) The Big Issue is a very good publication and it also helps the homeless. They did an interesting article a few years ago on how over population was a myth so who knows, they may just take up our cause for a one-off feature.

I wrote to the White House again. I asked them to consider setting up a discussion with some top experts in the field of indefinite life extension. Droplet can you pm me that address for that one you wrote to there?

I've sent it over.

I love your idea of getting a discussion in the White House with life extension experts. Perhaps that would get at least one government to consider our cause. :)

I sent a letter to the Big Issue now telling them about the Methuselah Foundation's Organ Prize.

Nice one. :) There was nothing in it this week regarding M Prize but if anything comes of it from either one of us, I'll post the results.
