Nice article, but could you please clarify that this is a repost of something that appeared earlier on H+ magazine (whatever happened to that place? pretty dead lately…)? Thanks.
Also, why does your picture here not match what I’ve seen of you elsewhere? Speaking of which, I’m not finding anything at all of you on Youtube for some reason…

I am looking forward to workable IVM. I like IVM better than artificial because the product won’t be artificial. As you say it will be real, only without the drawbacks that meat has now.

I expect that the initial introduction will be through things like hotdogs and sandwich meat where texture isn’t as much an issue as it would be for an artificial porterhouse.

@ ShaGGZ—Yes!  you’re right, this article is largely a repost of an article that appeared in hplusmagazine about two years ago—but that face is accounted for; there’s a link to the original article right under my name at top. I have updated information and added a “9th way.”

I only have one thing on youtube—you can find it via “hank hyena” and I think there’s also a link on my home site,—

regarding my photo - ? I don’t know - maybe I just look different when I’m all dressed up…

regarding hplusmagazine? I have no idea why it seems “pretty dead” - I’d like to see them post a lot more articles, too.

good article.
I do sometimes get pangs of guilt when I eat meat. I ‘ve watched Food Inc, and read Omnivore Dilemma. I get echoes of animal shrieking as they are being processed by the industrial food system.
But when I read Kurzweil’s idea of using artificial meat, it certainly seemed to me the right directions.
But the question is—is there going to be a similar reaction from the public regarding GM crop? E.g. hysteria about Frankenfood.

It looks like you plagarized and add one point about space schmeat.

@brianman23 - Hello. The hplusmagazine article on In-Vitro Meat was written 2 years ago by “Hank Hyena.”  The IEET updated version was written by Hank Pellissier. The two Hanks are the same person. Hank Hyena is/was the pen name of Hank Pellissier.  It’s a bit updated but 95% the same.

Hank Pellissier (me) has also recently published updates of 2 other hplusmagazine articles - the current “Nudism is Healthy for Brain and Body” is an update of “Get Naked: It’s Good for your Brain” and the article on Korean unification last month is an update of a Korean essay published by “Hank Hyena” 1.8 years ago.

thanks for your interest .
