May I also note that, while "Me First" is important for getting people started 
in cryonics, many cryonicists have too narrow of a world view and unconsciously 
(or perhaps *consciously* in some extreme cases) interpret that as "Me Only."  
In other words, once they have set up arrangements for themselves, they don't 
care what happens to anyone else.  It's pretty clear that this results in no one
else caring about them.

*Successful* cryonics organizations and successful outcomes can only come from a
large number of people saying "Me, and my family and my friends and a lot of 
other people first, all together."

(Cryobiologist John Baust reportedly calls cryonics "supreme egotism." Yeah, so?
