Alcor was the only provider that was actively discussed when I was 
signing up ('95-'97; I doubt very many people get through the whole 
process quickly unless they have a particular reason for urgency).  I 
know quite a few people in the local cryonics community, so that seemed 
sufficient evidence that they were the majority provider.  I haven't 
actively followed discussions in the community, so I don't know at what 
point other alternatives have also become well-known.  Alcor has done a 
reasonable job of expanding coverage, maintaining contact, and updating 
technology, so I've seen no reason to reconsider.

C. J. Cherryh, "Invader", on why we visit very old buildings:
       "A sense of age, of profound truths.  Respect for something
       hands made, that's stood through storms and wars and time.
       It persuades us that things we do may last and matter."
