In case anyone is interested, I've completed a draft of "Superlongevity: Is 
it inevitable and is it good?" Here's the abstract:

To the extent that it is possible to predict the composition of the future 
population of the world, I argue that the most likely scenario is that 
(almost) everyone will choose to adopt technology to live hundreds of years, 
perhaps indefinitely. Further, ethically speaking, this seems like the best 
option for our world, for such a world is one where there is higher levels 
of happiness and achievement.

Here's the full paper:


As always, comments welcome.
