Feeding from the Same Trough

I thought it funny yesterday when PC world posted its list of forecasts, and included in it the same video link that I had posted earlier to Jeff Han's demo at the TED conference.

The list is interesting, though nothing that what drive up too much controversy, as most people in the know already knew these technologies were around a couple of months ago.

Here's a prediction few others are making - people alive in there thirties today will live hundreds of years, like Aubrey de Grey says.

The convergence of nanotechnologies, biotechnologies like cloning, and other tech junk already in the experimental phase will keep pushing old age back, possibly indefinitely.

Someone call Alcor; sign me up (And yes, I was a Star Trek geek as a kid).

Campus Movie Fest Shoot

My group just finished filming for Campus Movie Fest last night at about 8:00 pm. Lots of fun. I'll post our movie from team "JMC 163"as soon as we're done with the editing; I'm pretty sure it'll get some play on YouTube.

It's called Roger, and it's a mockumentary on a small town that's sent a special forces officer from the Department of Homeland Security to "clean up the terrorist scum" that's waiting to attack. Thanks to Jess and her boyfriend for letting us use their place yesterday, and sorry to any passerbys that thought we were killing people.
