Short version:
Go there.

Long version:

I've used the same software that Slashdot ( uses to create an online magazine/forum longevity, life extension, and gerontology. This new site features news stories relevant to gerontology, "english translations" of actual articles from gerontology journals (with extensive links to an online dictionary). Future items will include interviews, profiles of various ongoing research projects, editorials, and cutting-through-the-hype evaluations of currently available anti-aging treatments.

As readers, you are encouraged to submit articles (either your own or quick blurbs with URL's pointing to the original source), and you will also be able to participate in an online discussion within any of the articles.

As readers post articles and comments, they begin to gain the ability to moderate comments and eventually become members of the editorial staff. Feel free to ask me any questions you want about this.

Word to the Wise: Don't put all your eggs into one basket-- to be uploaded, for example you have to live long enough for that technology to become available. Slowing down the aging process is already possible to some extent and may start yielding serious results sooner than the other options.

Here's the URL once more:
