I was delighted that Charles Stross turned a cryonics related
discussion between Hans Moravec and me into a plot element in
Accelerando.  Hans said he didn't need cryonics because he could be
revived from his written works.  I pointed out the search through
potential versions to get one that would write "Mind Children" would
be computationally intensive and involve discarding vast numbers who
came close but missed a few words and that I hoped the discard process
wasn't painful.  Charles turned this into part of the story when the
Field Circus gets back to the solar system.

If you have not read it, you don't have an excuse because it's up for
free on his web site.
Best wishes,
