The thing is to develop strategies now to make it help.  For instance,
it could be a good time to clear up, for most people, how hard it is to
get someone cryopreserved -- i.e., that it's unlikely Williams' son did
all this after his father was dead and that his father probably signed
on long ago.

It's also a time to get and keep press contacts.  Some of you -- Robert
Ettinger, Mike Darwin, Charles Platt, etc. -- should be _the_ people the
Media run to when they have an issue like this.  (E.g., when they want
an expert on foreign policy, they usually wheel in Henry Kissinger, they
don't just randomly call all the foreign policy think tanks.  I'm not
praising this, just stating how the Media work.)
