Subject: Alcor patient # vs Cryonics Institute patient #

According to the CI website and the recent Alcor press release regarding Ted 
Williams, both Alcor and CI have 67 patients each.   

I knew you guys were competitive but don't you think this is a bit extreme?

Mike Donahue ;-)     

Seriously, I was thinking about Alcor and CI the other day at an Academy of 
Motion Picture Arts and Sciences event about cameras.   In the motion picture 
camera world, Arriflex and Panavision dominate the markets almost 100%.   They 
are strong competitors and rivals.   They both have made significant 

contributions to motion picture technology.   However, they are also friends.   
exchange information.   Panavision owns and rents Arriflex cameras to their 

clients who want those cameras.   Somewhere in there is a lesson to be learned-
I hope that someday there will be many active Cryonics suspension companies, 
until the need for them is past. 

see you tomorrow!

Mike Donahue
