I work as a graphic designer so my skillset would involve Photoshop, Quarkxpeess, Illustrator, Indesign etc.

Can you produce pamphlets etc.? We have an ongoing leaflet project and such skills could be helpful. :)

Current Position: Software Engineer
Current Employer: NASA

History:

I've worked for both a large and small software company in the past on product development teams. I have also worked in IT shops as a developer in the construction and medical device manufacturing industries. Prior to that, I had extensive medical training and experience in the military with responsibilities and duties comparable to both a paramedic and a physician assistant.

Comments:

My main skills are in designing and developing software, but I do have pretty extensive experience in managing and administering databases. I also have pretty good hardware experience and regularly do system builds from component purchases ( <3 newegg).

Other:

My passions other than life extension are surfing (and traveling to chase waves), exercising, gardening, and computer games. Weird mix....... I know. I am only interest in games where you play both with and against other people. Nothing bores me more than repetition and non dynamic game play. The only way to actually have that is when other people are involved. Been successful at my hobby as well, been either the leader or member of some of the top teams in the world across several games. Back in the day, I use to code and design zones for old school MUDs ......for fun.

I am 18, still in high school. My major is in Electronics, so I guess that would be my skill, I want to be an engineer like my brother. He's a computer engineer but i'll settle for Electrical engineering. So that's it pretty much :)

I wonder how that could help promote the transhumanist cause.

No , I am not really good in public speaking. My hobbies include playing video games, cosmology, philosophy, listening to music etc...
I may be going to college next year for 2 years and than doing army for 3 years(where i live you're supposed to do army for 3 years right after high school, but in this program you do the service in the field that you're specialized at). Where I would be learning to be a "practical engineer"(http://en.wikipedia....ctical_engineer) in electrical engineering.
My point was what would my future of profession of electrical engineering help Transhumanism in the long run? Because really, I think this is the only thing I will ever have serious skill at.

Well for a start, you're from Israel...what language do you speak? That's a skill. :) Secondly, if you look in the projects and ideas forum, just pick something that takess your fancy and help ouy. I've said it before and will say it again - outreach takes no specialist skills and is easy. After all, I help out here and I'm just an office worker.

17 years old, still going to school :)

Skills? dunno... Perhaps all Computer related stuff, just started learning C++
I'm a very good seller too (I think :|?)

about me... only living in Germany since 3.5 years, France for the rest (which could explain my horrible English skills? :-D )
Found this forum while searching about nootropics, and plan for the next few years to begin with skydiving, and move to BASE jumping :laugh:

Well He@dshot, you are young and volunteering here could potentially look good on a CV for future jobs. Computer skills and sales are VERY good skills. As you are obviously comfortable dealing with people, would you ever consider public speaking/outreach at at all? A talk at your school on life extension could be a good idea perhaps. :) We also have a lot of life extension outreach work where we could use someone with good persuasion techniques able to sell our cause.

Just found about this forum a few days ago, let's wait a little for that :laugh:

They are so many things i have to discover before even think about the "talk on life extension" :happy:

yeah, that is a good idea.

get at least a general understanding or basic understanding of what direction and specialty you want to take even this forum and the life extension can be extremely broad.

Lots of learn on here and great place to meet and get to know some really great people for mutual and worldly benefit.

I'm still a student(hopefully that will change in a few years) but I can provide legal advice; France/EU law specifically. I guess I could also provide translation services if needed; french to english and vis versa.
I'm also rather good at stocks, (protofolio up 7.8% so far this year (got hammered by Boeing), 121% last year (thanks Apple,Greece,Société Général,Ford and Porsche) ) and so I've got a little fund set up on the side to invest in projects which I'm hoping to add to in the coming years.

Perhaps you would consider doing talks about life extension, maybe at your local educational establishments? It would use your love of speaking...you love what I hate. :)

Haha yeah sounds good! I am new to this forum but wanted to get involved. Are you compiling information to distribute? I have been into smart drugs, nutrition, and supplements. But it would be nice to have a general outline to work with or if you have a idea of where I could start. That would be great. Looking forward to getting involved! Thanks!

I've got who we are, all right. To move forward it is not enough to have a forum topic. Where is the leader and what is the plan? There are many well educated people on the planet and if we put a good effort into the solving of this problem we might be able to do it. First of all we have to find professionals working in bio-research already investigating the influence of different proteins on the longevity such as SIRT3, for example. We need to find out how to speed up the research.

Hi there, I am Carene ~ There are some really awesome people here, with great skills! What can I do? Most everything I set my mind to actually that doesn't involve insects ~ but for the sake of describing my current situation:

Administrative - I am currently employed as a Legal Assistant for prominent attorneys in the labor and employment area of law. I am extremely organized, and have interpersonal skills that span all walks of life. Great researcher, compiler of information, above-average in spreadsheets.

Creative - Out-of-box thinker, "type A" - I am very artistic, ambitious and caring. I can sing. I can dance. I am persuasive and can find ways to get what I want by alternate angles when necessary without unrest. I can compromise, too. I can analyze and adapt to a team situation where needed.

Handy Person - I can weld, light electrical work, I have been known to make furniture, can change a tire and check basic things on car, I can read specs pretty well, and can troubleshoot.

Spiritual - I can appreciate many aspects of different cultures and religions.

Assorted - I can ride (and jump) a horse. I also can read tarot cards with an impressive level of accuracy.

We are not all scientists here although we do have a fair few of those. This thread will hopefully get made into a database to match people and skills to voluntary roles. Science is very important but we also have to raise awareness to bring people round to the idea and also to encourage funding to our cause and many other roles. There are still a lot of people dead against the idea of defeating death (ha ha bad pun!) and we have to try to change that.

Hi there, I'm having a rather eclectic life mostly because I'm prone to both OCD, ADHD and deep depression, this translates such that I get extremely interested in something, think far too deeply about it and then absolutely have to find something else. To top it off I'm dyslexic (diagnosed 3 years ago) which is both totally awesome (3D mind and memory palaces) and terribly annoying (I love books but very rarely finish them, give me an equation any-day)
So my list of passions goes like this, of which some I'm rather proficient at, all of which I'm developing.

Biochemistry (currently in the form of standardized education at Wolves Uni but 25 years in a variety of styles and guises)
Nutrition (a necessity as I have a body that needs it and years of sport and health development. I have designed health foodstuff sold in major chains but, more interestingly for me, worked with high athletes)
Herbalist (the medicine man and the scientist. I was head of R&D for Advanced Herbals now called Swiss herbals.)
Sports conditioning (I've always had loads of energy and a mind to apply it to an aim)
No-Gi jujitsu/submission grappler (I get folded in to odd bruised shapes by my coach every week but recently competed in the nationals an came 4th. I was told that they didn't have anyone of my age (44) in the weight-class (70-75kgs) I was competing in so I had to compete with the 16-25 year olds ha ha ha kicked arse)
Hedge-layer (I grew up with woodlands around me so I'm in love with nature absolutely and totally so to enable better wildlife management I often go hedge-laying)
Woodland copicing (as above)
Groovy schmoozer (When I need to be I can work with a group with a pleasant, stimulating and easy manner)
Hermetic annoyingly deep think (I often get my teeth stuck in to an issue and take myself off until it's resolved sometimes for weeks)
Yoga instructor (Om shanti)
Good cook (My mother is a chef so I grew up being commis-chef as she learned her food art. And she has always been on a diet so, of course, I learned about macronutrients)
