About taping cryonics conferences:

The very first point I would make is that MANY scientific and 
medical conferences are taped as a matter of course. The same
is true of computer conferences. It is quite usual that you
can buy books containing ALL the talks once the conference

This essentially means that the Cryonics Conference is doing
something quite unusual in NOT providing tapes and even books.
I would say it is unusual enough that some would raise their
eyebrows at it, asking themselves: who are these guys?

This becomes especially noteworthy given the fact that the
price of the Alcor Conference has now become much like those
of other scientific/medical/computing conferences. Attendees
at such conferences actually EXPECT as a matter of course
to receive books containing the talks.

You don't have to ask me to prove this. Just look in journals
for the ads for conferences of various kinds, and see what
the conference provides.

         Best wishes and long long life for all,

               Thomas Donaldson
