We store and spend a lot of our lives online, we are creating a volume of content that is unprecedented. In today’s world, anyone can create a new currency and everyone can be a publisher and a broadcaster. We are documenting our personal and professional lives on the web with photos, videos, blog posts, status updates, forum discussions, reviews, and snippets of day-to-day life that can be mundane, funny and deeply personal. We’re creating online relationships, building friendships – independent of geography – a constant stream of ambient familiarity and data collection. “What happens to my digital legacy when I die?” is a subject with many touch points in today’s online world. Here are just some of the areas I address in this topic:

  • What should you consider about your digital legacy today? 
  •  What are the business implications of death online?
  • How is technology changing the mourning process?
  • How do families deal with a digital legacy?
  • What are the policies of the online services?
  • Who owns your content after you’ve passed on?
  • What policies do online services have for digital legacy?

My presentations use real stories of people and events to illustrate each scenario, and are presented with respect and care to both the subject matter and the impact on the audience. Each session contains practical and tangible information that people can relate to and act upon. This is a diverse topic with a number of possible solutions, and a variety of approaches. If time allows, discussion is encouraged.
