The Digital Beyond: Introduction and Problems

Why should you care about what happens to your digital life after you die? Two days ago, I posted on John Romano and Evan Carroll’s work the past two years to bring attention to our digital “estate”.

In case you don’t want to read their book, Your Digital Afterlife, I thought I’d post some additional animations they created that address this issue.

The first video asks, “What happens to your digital identity after you die?” and “explains the issues of death and the opportunities brought about by technology and the Internet”. The second video “explains some of the hurdles between you and the digital afterlife“.

As the authors state, one thing is certain — we all die someday. Do you have a plan for the disposition of your digital assets upon your demise?

Please let me know what you think....
