Robert, as some of you old-timers will know, was a former director of
Extropy Institute. He was an extremely smart guy and a major advocate of
(and practical entrepreneur for) life extension and other transhumanist

I'm not only extremely unhappy to hear of his sudden and unexpected death,
but also distressed that he had no arrangements for cryopreservation (to the
best of my knowledge). That's quite surprising and, frankly, appalling given
Robert's understanding of the technology and future possibilities. This is
especially distressing because Alcor has people in Florida, where he died,
who could have started the transport and cooldown on very short notice.

Robert had his oddities but was always intelligent and probing and on the
side of life. All we can do for him now is remember him. It's something, but
it's very little, for he is gone forever.
