I was able to insert a pro-cryonics paragraph into my latest book. 
The publisher printed 40,000 for the first printing, so it should get 
lots of exposure--the book is in the "...for Dummies" series: "Cool 
Careers for Dummies." For your amusement, here's the paragraph on 
cryonics. I put it in the book's section on future trends.

Nanotechnology, the ability to manipulate molecule-by-molecule, means 
that in 50-200 years, it is likely that we will be able to repair 
age-damaged cells--for example, by lengthening the previously mentioned 
telomeres. More and more people are deciding to be frozen in liquid 
nitrogen upon their deaths in hopes of being revived when science has 
advanced enough that this molecule-by-molecule repair can be done. 
Though the odds of all this working out may be small, the alternative is 
absolutely certainty of being eaten by worms, and an eternity of death.

Long life,
Marty Nemko
