Creator & director : email email@example.com Cryonics-for-Connectomes or Connectome-Cryonics are equivalent terms for CryoConnectomics or cryoconnectomics. It's now the only cryonics that matters and it has not yet been proven viable-- but it's urgent to do so. It can also potentially falsify the entire cryonics thesis. It is to be distinguished from plastination, uploading and A.I. which is NOT cryonics and is of no interest to cryonicists qua cryonicists. Many cryonicists are also uploaders or transhumanists but cryonics itself is not interested in uploading by definition but rather reversible suspended animation which does require proof of survival of connectomes through vitrification.
Cryonet is more off-topic, thought to be of interest to cryonicists, than on-topic.

It seems to me that CryoNet is a defacto off-or-on-topic area for cryonicists. The interesting thing about being off-topic is that there are really two kinds of off-topic'ness. One is acceptable: It's off-topic ideas that are thought to be of general interest to the current cryonicist group. The other isn't acceptable: Off -topic ideas that are personally specialized ideas that that person is attempting to share with the cryonics community. That latter form of off-topic'ness is better dealt with in a separate forum. This is why CryoTalk will become more important: It allows easy access to all forms of on or off-topic related areas by and for cryonicists, both to share thoughts on related issues and to share personal soapbox issues without interfereing in the bandwidth of forums where the off-topic'ness is of the sort where it needs to be generallly acceptable.
