PLAN AHEAD FOR YOUR DIGITAL DEMISE

On May 25, 2010, I posted an item entitled "Plan for Continued Access to Digital Assets Upon Death or Disability."

Following up on that entry, I wanted to bring to your attention an interview on the NPR radio show called Talk of the Nation on June 9, 2010, in which the host, Neal Conan, interviewed Robert Roper, a columnist for Obit Magazine, about "digital death." A written transcript of the interview, as well as the recorded interview is available for your consideration. The interview explores issues concerning the disposition of, and access to, your web based digital information (emails, photos, blog posts, Facebook page, Twitter account, cloud based data, etc.) upon your death or disability.
