Subject: Orgs. founding dates, attitudes on cryonics

To correct a minor error in John de Rivaz's posting (#14869), Alcor was
founded before CI (1972 vs. 1976). CI was not the first cryonics-related
organization in Michigan, but I think the first to offer suspension services.

Mike Donahue, #14872, offers some thoughts (good ones too) on why we don't
get many signups, then says

>Okay, well, I'd be more than willing to hear what anyone has to say on these 
>ideas, positive or negative.  It might help with learning to presuade people 
>to sign up. ...

Chapter 3 of my book is devoted to why so many don't choose cryonics, while
a few do. A stand-alone version is at <http://www.venturist.org/attitude.html>.
