Subject: New Alcor CEO!


I just happened across the 4 hour old announcement at Max More's blog - 
"My new responsibility as CEO of Alcor Foundation". He takes over Jan 1!
Read the entry - 


My comment at the blog is currently "awaiting owner approval" therefore 
I'll copy it here in case that is delayed/lost:
Wow! We (husband Paul Wakfer, friend David Jackemeyer and I) were just 
talking about you. I looked up what you were doing these days since you 
had terminated the Extropy Institute. I checked your blog; surprise is 
an understatement at what I saw for today's entry and then read to the 
two of them.

Since I and Paul have been signed with Alcor since Dec 2005 - after our 
individual experiences with CryoCare in the 90s - we are pleased to see 
you take on the job as CEO. We are not pleased with Alcor's use of funds 
these past years and had been seriously debating (almost decided) not to 
pay our dues this year, increased now and to be again next year. But we 
will likely now go ahead and pay again to see how things work out next 
year with this major change of leadership.

So welcome aboard, Max. We hope that you will succeed at making Alcor an 
at least more financially sound and cost-effective organization at 
promoting cryonics and processing cryopreservations. Paul says:
"Don't take orders from the board which tends to want to micro-manage 
everything. However, from my memory you are a person who can resist 
this. If there is anything I can do to help, let me know."
Note that we are in Casa Grande AZ (just 50 miles from Alcor) from 
November to April inclusive and the other 6 months at Paul's legal 
residence in Ontario Canada.
