The 2018 Project for Awesome concluded on Sunday, December 9, and we had some really good videos in support of our work. We wanted to share a few of our favorite videos with you today. Our president, Keith Comito, kicked things off with our official P4A video, and he shared a few words about why…

Project for Awesome (P4A) 2018 is finally here, and you can help us to win much-needed funds at no cost to you by voting for the videos supporting our charity. Every year, a number of charities are chosen through voting, and they each receive a sum of money based on what the fundraiser at P4A…

Since 2007, the Project for Awesome, simply known as P4A, has been helping to make the world a better place. It is an initiative of the Foundation to Decrease World Suck, a Montana-based charitable organization run by Hank and John Green, and their plan is simple: to make the world suck less. So, how is…

Thought experiments can be really useful tools to better understand the implications of abstract ideas—especially ideas that are accepted at face value as self-evident truths. In some cases, they resemble proofs by contradiction in that they allow us to see that, if said ideas were true, they would end up clashing with other ideas accepted…

As part of our strategy, we are constantly networking and seeking opportunities to engage new audiences about the topic of healthy life extension.

For example, Lifespan.io’s current crowdfunding campaign is going extremely well, and journalists begin to talk about senolytics in positive terms, without any predictions of doom and gloom resulting from these upcoming drugs.

This, mind you, is in a world where aging is still inevitable; people know that they won’t be in top shape during those ten extra years, and yet, perhaps hoping that they might be…

Even with an increasing number of articles about aging and rejuvenation technologies in mass media, the general public’s lack of information remains a problem. Pro-longevity organizations try to spread useful information; however, it’s clear that this information is, quite often, only delivered to current members of the community instead of to a new audience.
