The way we are making leaps and bounds regarding technology I wouldn't be surprised. I can see the day when we just all upload ourselves.

I think you're close to my age. Go you remember an old song called In the Year 2525? It may just be prophetic although a couple hundred years off.
I would seriously only want to upload myself after I had lived my life. Think of it - getting to start a new life whenever a new game comes out you want to play. Being around to see your great, great, grandkids and offer them help and guidance in their lives and seeing them all grow up while you still get to have fun and spend time together. It would be amazing!
