Few days back I was thinking..what will happen to all the web space which I possess after my death...My profiles in social networking sites...my email accounts..etc.
People will be able to post some comments on my profile but there would be no more updates from my side...
People will be able to send me the mails but no reply back from my side.
I think there should be a provision to choose the nominee for these accounts . If the account holder passes away , these websites should give away the access to the nominees by some way..either by sharing the passwd etc.
Just googled a bit and found there is a new startup by the name of Legacy Locker, it offers an online repository for usernames and passwords that is released to a beneficiary in the event of a person's death.
Not a bad Idea though :)
