I just read this article from CNN, New services promise online life after death.
It's talking about the fact that a growing number of people have various accounts online that will be unreachable after their death, such as domains, bank accounts, email accounts, online auctions, and even online multi-player games and social networking accounts.
There are now some services popping up that offer to reveal passwords and online account information to beneficiaries when you die, for a fee.
One concern is that these services will be prime targets for identity theft.
But if they find a way to do this securely, I can definitely see the appeal. I think our lives are only going to become further dependent on the internet as time goes on.
