Dear Cryonics Advocate/Skeptic/Medical Professional:

Cryonics technology is more advanced than even most signed up cryonicists

But most people in the scientific community do not realize what progress has
been made.  Indeed, most cryonicists do not realize the protocols and
technologies that have been developed in the service of making cryonics a
true "evidence based technology."  As well as the details of the many
challenges involved in making cryonics a legitimate "evidence based

Announcing: *The Cryonics Technology Progress Conference*:  Here is what the
conference is about--

**Details of cryonics process from start to finish*--Confirmed presenters
include *Aaron* *Drake*, Alcor Transport Director,* Ben Best*, Cryonics
Institute President, and *Catherine* *Baldwin*, General Manager of Suspended
Animation, Inc.

**Suspended Animation, Inc*. protocols and technology, now available for
members of both CI and Alcor.

*A Refresher course for medical professionals and first responders,
including the existing Brevard County Medical Team who will be attending.

*Details of Alcor and CI protocols, procedures, and logistics

*The meeting WILL develop agreements, logistics, administrative protocols,
relationships, and COMMUNITY that may save your life

*No amount of emails and blogging develops the TRUST and RELATIONSHIPS that
can emerge sharing a beer in a hot tub.  This meeting will enable you to
meet the people and protocols taking cryonics into the 21st Century.  The
meeting will include watching, and to an extent participating, in the
technical training for "First Responders" in cryonics situations.

Who is invited:  Cryonicists and potential cryonicists of all
types, especially skeptics who have been on the sidelines waiting for the
technology to mature, and medical specialists.

Katsaus kryoniikkaa vastustaviin artikkeleihin

Less Wrong -blogin käyttäjä ciphergoth on yrittänyt etsiä laadukkaita artikkeleita, jotka kumoaisivat kryoniikan kannattajien tieteellisiä ja teknisiä väitteitä. Katsauksen tulos on yksiselitteinen: niitä ei löydy.

A survey of anti-cryonics writing
I mailed Michael Shermer, Steve Jones, Quackwatch, and Professor David Pegg. I told them (quite truthfully) that I had recently started talking to some people who were cryonics advocates, that they seemed persuasive but I wasn't an expert and didn't want to fall for a scam, and asked if there was anything they'd recommend I'd read on the subject to see the other side.

The only one of these to reply was Michael Shermer. He recommended I read David Brin, Steve Harris and Gregory Benford. This is a pretty surprising reply. The latter two are cryonics advocates, and while Brin talks about a lot of possible problems, he agrees with cryonics advocates that it is technically feasable.
