Your 'Immortal' Avatar May Be Growing on the Web

Abstract:
One of the main movers in the field is the Terasem Movement Foundation Inc., a non-profit organization funded by endowments from anonymous founders. Its mission is "to promote the geoethical... use of nanotechnology for human life extension."

To this end, the group's flagship project, Lifenaut, mentioned earlier, offers two services: Mindfile creates an online avatar loaded with the customer's "attitudes, values, mannerisms, and beliefs," replete with biographical details and documents. Bio File then offers indefinite cryogenic storage of your DNA in the hope that "future technology may be able to grow you a new body via ectogenesis and your mind file may be able to be downloaded into it, enabling you to live on indefinitely."
