What happens when we die?

I'm not thinking of the big question here, but as our lives get more and more online, what happens to all those pieces of stuff that we leave online? And equally important, will anyone know we are gone as opposed to merely lost interest or a bad connection?

Well a Second Life cyber friend of mine, Mike Burleigh has set up a cyber memorial oriented mainly to Second LIfe Life Residents who have died.



The memorial is at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Cassandra/147/188/79. Second Life users who are on a machine with SL installed can paste the slurl into their web browser to launch the SL map and teleport over.

Seems macabre at first until you think about how intertwined we are with the web.
