Potentially of interest to my fellow antipodean LessWrongers. Stasis Systems Australia is a company seeking to start a cryonics facility in Australia. Their website is pretty sparse, but they just sent out a mailing list update on how they are going, and it doesn't appear that the information therein is located in any news section of the website, so I thought I'd post it here.
We at Stasis Systems Australia Ltd are happy to report our plans to build a cryonics facility in Australia are progressing well.
You may remember contacting us or attending our online meeting last year, but here's a quick reminder of what we're doing.
We are a group of Australasian cryonicists putting together a non-for-profit organisation to build and run the first cryonic storage facility in the southern hemisphere.
We're proud to have WA-based Marta Sandberg on the board of directors as an advisor, as she has a wealth of knowledge and experience from her ongoing role as a director of the well-established Cryonics Institute.
We are now officially incorporated as a not-for-profit company, and one investor away from the magic number of ten that will trigger the next stage of the project - selecting a piece of land and starting construction!
We have had productive discussions with the NSW Department of Health, and are developing positive relationships with the Cryonics Institute, Alcor, and KrioRus.
We think what we’re doing is worthwhile and in the long term will be of great benefit to the Australasian community. If you’d like to get involved either as an investor or a volunteer, that would be fantastic. We’d love help with articles for the website, search engine optimisation, web graphics, or any other skill you have that we might need.
We would especially appreciate you passing this update on to anyone you know who might be interested.
