I'm glad there's publicity for cryonics, Alcor, 
and our friend Max, but the headline—repeated in 
the article and now on Drudge Report—is not news.

Max's official Alcor bio says he's been a member 
since 1986. And he's hardly made a secret of his 
plans for a neurosuspension—he was posting about 
it on cryonet at least 24 years ago.

And Max did *not* compare himself to Da Vinci.

His point was that like Da Vinci and the 
helicopter (or Babbage's Difference Engine, 
O'Neill's L-5 space colonies, Drexler's MNT), 
cryonicists can envision the development of 
revival techniques long before tech is up for accomplishing them.
