Don't listen to Eli, he's on crack.

If you happen to keel over now, I'm afraid taking the deep dewar dive
is your only option. (And, boy, let me tell it's a really shitty
product -- I can show you some EM micrographs which will make Merkle

So best option is to hang around until nano hits the streets (I gather
you're not into CR), or until headfreezing has matured (there are some
arguments about identity which might remove some of the fear of the
big chill), which can take a decade or two, or forever. And, yeah, it
really helps to become rich meanwhile. A couple of extra megabucks on
the side can make you an early adopter.

Apart from that (if Singularity critters don't eat you) you'll only
get more of the old rat race thing, only more, faster, and
meaner. Yeah, and if you make it, you'll be a rat about forever ;)
