Re: recent magazine feature: you can take it ($$$) with you

Hi, I haven't yet, but did just recently email the attorney. At $5000, that is a good price to create a trust, in my opinion and based on recent experience redoing our complete estate plan. Whether the Alcor model or this will work is unknown, but it is like cryonics itself, it is better to try and ...

Panic buttons to summon help - Athena Roar

I ordered some of Athena Roars (see http://roarforgood.com ) back when they were doing their indiegogo (or whatever) funding round - two for my now college students - and they finally shipped and look pretty good. It is essentially a "panic button" (no need to panic, but it will help summon assistan...

Re: New associate (soon to be full) member introducing mysel

Yeah, probably a good idea to check with them. They did send out cards a year or two ago for a free year as an associate member. Maybe on college campuses, if there are people who the person giving the talk thinks are legitimately interested they could give them a year free. Happy Thanksgiving (tomo...

Re: New associate (soon to be full) member introducing mysel

Hi, Cryonet used to be active, but they shut it down 6-7 years ago. I bet some departments would be more open than others as you suggested. There are a fair number of computer science-y/tech type people who are interested in cryonics - Hal Finney, Marvin Minsky (at least in the past, probably 'froze...
