Mike,

So when are you going to offer Geron to the public so we can jump on the 
money wagon are share in the billions you will get when you breakthrough 
with your aging research?   WSJ has widened the door for you?

The rest of us could follow up the WSJ article with letters to the author 
encouraging him to write more about the subject and that we are 
interested in his keen journalism.  Thus generating more support and more 
capital for research, not only venture capital but gov't and foundation 
grants.

Sending copies of the WSJ article to legislators and corporate biotech 
firms as well as biomed research university administrators may stimulate 
action.
