Dan, the archives both here and Cryonet, are full of discussion on
this topic. Or you can start
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.
