Dan, the archives both here and Cryonet, are full of discussion on 
this topic.  Or you can start 
here:  http://www.alcor.org/AboutCryonics/index.html

There was a time when a considerable majority of extropians were 
signed up for cryonics, most of them with Alcor.  I doubt that is the 
case on this list, though I know some of you are.

This thread was a discussion of inheritance, which is a none issue in 
a post nanotech world.

As we who are signed up say, being frozen is the second worse thing 
that can happen to you.

If you have a better idea for getting into the deep future for people 
who are beyond current medical options, then please state it.
