I'll point out that Cryocare was founded by a lot of the people
involved in the Dora Kent affair (Saul Kent, among others). Cryocare
is really a split-off more than an independantly evolved organization.

Personally, if I deanimate I want Mike Darwin supervising the process
of pumping me full of gunk, and I prefer to have more control over the
disposition of my patient care funds, so I picked Cryocare, since
Alcor has no provision to let you choose things like who will do your
suspension and where you get stored...
