Response to Hiatus
Hi, Matthew; good to see you back. I'm still personally in the dark about what happened, but it sounds like you are pretty happy with how things wound up.
As far as trusting the establishment versus making it happen on your own, I think cryonics always has been a "make it happen on your own" enterprise. It seems to me that people have been trying for decades to hit critical mass and, with all the signups and people involved, feeling like they are progressing towards it while really they are overestimating the progress made since most people signed up are not really on a "make it happen on your own" wavelength. There are people who are **SERIOUS** about making sure that they get a shot at surviving into the future, and there are people who expect it to be handed to them.
I'm all for a world where cryopreservation and reanimation can be handed to anyone who wants it, but the reality is that at this point in time people who really want to survive have to be as serious about it as the original cryonics pioneers.
