Cyber Funeral

Post by Rob Lister »

I'd like to say, 'We did it first!'

But really, we just did it early.
Your online data is a bit like single-use plastic: there’s tonnes of the stuff and it’s very hard to get rid of. When you die, your physical body will slowly decay, or be sent to a crematorium or dissolved in a tank filled with potassium hydroxide. But that pesky digital corpse? That’s going to be around for a while, like a data soul stuck in online purgatory, never to receive salvation. Unless, of course, you set it free.

A good article for those of us who would like to limit ... or expand!.. our digital persistence.

The arc of the moral universe bends towards chaos.
People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.

Do it yourself via majestic heavenly force. And the browser switch that dumps all that shit upon closing the program.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
