Indeed, but what means toward preventing or slowing human aging (aside from
uploading, or schemes that are essentially uploading) have been presented
that are not biohacking?  Thus, in this very narrow context, what is the
difference as reduces to practice between transhumanism and biohacking?

As to the talk - IIRC, it was at the Cubberly Community Center, some
evening in 200X.  I do not recall beyond that, although googling suggests
that it was http://www.svhi.com/newsletters/2009/slf-052009.pdf and
http://www.suretomeet.com/exec/gt/event.h,event=8b9b4d1bc178 .  Again, the
problem was that the presentations before Aubrey's dissolved into pitches
for not-well-tested and potentially counterproductive medication routines,
such that we left before Aubrey even took the podium.
