Nanomedicine Nears the Clinic
 By David Voss
 Minute devices that repair your cells directly are
 closer to reality than you may have thought.

The Story of the 21st Century: Q&A with Ray Kurzweil
 Tired of your too, too solid flesh? Mild-mannered
 inventor Ray Kurzweil tells you how to scan your
 mind into a computer and live forever.

(I haven't yet read these but one quick note: the opening blurb for the
second piece says:

    Ray Kurzweil created a hubbub with his idea that we will soon be
    able to "download" ourselves into machines and live forever.

Even in an MIT publication the notion of uploading (here misnamed) is
basically credited to Kurzweil. There's really no excuse. Whatever the
case, he---and uploading---are certainly receiving more and more attention
all the time.)
