Sure why not, it doesnt matter any way.
If life is, as some speculate, just a simulation, then longer life is just a longer time in the sim.

Yep awesome, as much as I would like to be semi-immortal (20k years give or take), the last thing this planet needs is even more of us feeding off it!

But if we were committed to spreading ourselves off planet then I'm all for helping the genome move along.
Life begins at 100 MIPS!

Guess I'm a cynic, but the first thing I thought of was this:



:D
Catapultem habeo. Nisi pecuniam amnem mihi dabis, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam.
I have a catapult. Give me all the money, or I will fling an enormous rock at your head.

Lol the way the articular spins this is pretty funny, I see this more to do with the rise of these health apps and health tracking tech to get people to work out more and eat healthier. Also there are a few tech companies I read about a while back trying to make a real tricorder that could find out whats wrong with a person much easier and quicker than today, if a company like Google gets behind  that then that's pretty cool.
