Not-so-SciFi [was: Doc Savage]

Kathryn's post about Arnold Schwartznegger signing up to play Doc Savage reminded me of an idea we came up with at the Foresight Group Genius meeting in June.

We had a little brainstorming session about Cryonics and were thinking about how to promote the Cryonics mindset. Clearly, a commercial with Arnold being lowered stiffly via a crane into a body-sized LN2 vat, saying "I'll be back", would be an attention getter beyond compare.

Somewhere in our extended network must be someone who knows someone who knows Arnold (after all the Web network is bigger than the people network -- I think its 17-19 clicks to any page on the web and only 9 personal relationship hops to any person in the world). If we can identify the shortest path we might be able to float the idea to Arnold.

Lets put our thinking caps on.
