By the way, we got some fun discussion going about cryonics on our office blog:
The main point of my essay was that cryonics has a funny disadvantage: by aiming for a scientific rationality it opens itself up for criticism in a way religions do not, and this might actually give it a disadvantage as people mix up "being possible to criticise" with "is not morally desirable". It might not be a deep ethical claim, but we get into some fun trans-temporal population ethics in the comments.
