  • “I’m (very |so )?sorry.”
  • “How can I help you?”(and then HELP THEM)
  • LISTEN.
  • NEVER make a speech.
  • NEVER try to push the grieving process along.
  • NEVER comment on the deceased’s relationship with any deities.
  • Dealing with your virtual life after death

  • Websites may be leased space, but content is sticky.Blog comments, social media accounts, Usenet posts, etc. will outlast you.
  • Remember your virtual life in your will
  • Remember your online life in your will
    State in your will or in a codicil:
    Where your sites and accounts are
    Whether to keep them running or delete them
  • Remember your online life in your will
    If you want to keep sites running, set money aside for that in your will
  • Remember your online life in your will
    Keep passwords written somewhere safe (e.g. safe deposit box) + say where they are in will
  • Your body?
    That’s up to you

  • Unfortunately, most states ban a full Viking funeral.
  • Summary
    “I’m sorry” is all you have to say
    Listen, offer help – look for ways to help
    No speeches! It’s not about you
  • Summary
    Decide if you want your sites/accounts to continue after your death
    State your decision in your will
    Keep your info somewhere safe for your executors to access
  • Thank You
