You seem to accept that computing power is doubling every year. The fruit fly has 10^5 neurons, a mouse 10^7, a cat 10^9, and a human 10^11. It's only a matter of time (and not that much) before a $10 thumb drive will have enough memory to store a complete mapping of all the neurons in your brain. People won't need to freeze themselves to be immortal at that point.

But they'll have to be rich enough to afford super-computer time if they want to really live. :-)
