Merrily we roll along, roll along, roll along, More and more mainstream we go...

CBS had a program on the "Search for Immortality" on its 48 hour news show last night. Sorry I didn't know about it in advance, I think you can get videotape copies.

An interesting segment covered discussions with Ben Levinson, a very active 104 year old man
[If we could get him as a speaker for Extro5 this
would be interestinging...]. Other segments discussed work by Michael West, the perspective of cryonics and there is even a picture of Brian Delaney and CR discussion [Is this *our* very own Brian Delaney???].

And for those of you who don't watch the news eBay stopped the sale of a kidney. Story is interesting from the perspective of "sales police". Greg, if you read this -- could eBay be held "liable" for facilitating what would be an illegal transaction? What if the transaction were to occur between two non-US citizens?

Will Electronic Auctions have to move to "The Libertarian State?" to be able to sell stuff that more restrictive states disallow?

Does anyone know if the top level domains like: ".li" (or ".lb"), ".th", or ".ex" are taken and whether you have to be a country to get them?
