My own opinion is: "live first" If I have after some methaphysical questions
well, that implies I am living, even as a copy. Knowing your ideas from
cryonet archives, I assume you would not be reanimated as a copy if
nano is near completion.

Uploading will comes first for a simple reason: The hard part of the process
is molecular scale brain reading. To undertake a nano repair, you must 
know about what to repair, and that is the same problem as brain reading,
simply it is extended to the full body. After you get the "destruction map",
you must figure out how to reverse dammages and then send nano robots
to do the work.
