I was holding the book in my hands last year in a bookstore. It was a
guide to groups and organizations that purported to have the
Generation X angle, and I saw Extropians listed in the index. The entry
read something like "a fringe cult based in Californa". I'll drop by
the bookstore sometime this week and see if I can find it again.

WARNING, HUMOR.future scenario: Max dies and his frozen head
is enshrined at Alcor. Two thousand years hence, he has been
canonized as the founder of a religion with major economic and
political holdings, and the priests who control it refuse to allow him
to be revived. "Best Do It So" has been corrupted into "Just Do It", and
moral imperatives force everyone to wear black t-shirts and Nike shoes.
A small band of rebels known as the Excelsior League forms an underground
resistance. In an attempt to remove the symbolic power of Max's
corpus, they into Alcor and takes a blowtorch to Max's chamber.
(Hmm, that didn't end well for Max, did it!)
