Alexander "Sasha" Chislenko (December 2, 1959 - May 8, 2000) was an extropian thinker active in the Boston extropian community, notable for conceptualizing the fyborg (a portmanteau of "functional" and "cyborg").

In 1991, Chislenko offered criticism[1] of futarchy, meriting a reply[2] by creator Robin Hanson.[3]

Chislenko experienced episodes of depression for many years. In the early morning of May 8 2000, during a depressive episode, Alexander Chislenko committed suicide.[4]

Although he had expressed interest in cryonics, his obituary says he had not made arrangements.[5]
