Yes, that’s right folks. You heard it here first. It’s true. We’re all going to die. We don’t like talking and thinking about it, but it’s inevitable.

What happens to our content when we leave this place? Who will manage our blog posts, photos, videos, audio, tweets, etc.?

How will future generations find and access your digital estate?

It’s time to start giving this some thought kids. Death waits for nobody.

Hey, don’t let the topic get you down. We’re not dead yet, right?

  8. 8. When a friend died unexpectedly last year I couldn't bring myself to delete him as a friend on Facebook, but it is rather disturbing to see his smiling face in my friends list. My kids think I'm crazy not to press delete, but it seems so horrible. I've been wondering for ages what other people do in the same situation, if there's some sort of netiquette.
  9. 9. “We’re all haunted by our losses,” Text “It’s just that Facebook reminds us of that in a very in-your-face kind of way. I know it’s an idea of popular culture that you get over a loss. But the reality is, you don’t.” Dr. Susan D. Block, chief of Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston
  10. 10. "The bank, the life insurance company, his pension provider – they were all happy to deal with us. All of them except for PayPal. We just gave up in the end. We didn't have what they wanted, and they weren't going to give us access." - Darren Stuart.
