Preparing for Your Digital Death
In the new medium of digital communication, there is an opportunity to preserve identity—something that has heretofore been available only to kings, pharaohs, and emperors.
Your data is going to outlive you. The question is in what form and for how long. In its simplest form, a digital legacy is a summation of the digital assets you leave behind for others. As the shift to digital continues, the digital assets left behind will become a greater part of your overall legacy. These assets, to one degree or another, can be distributed in much the same way that physical assets are, meaning each one can be bequeathed to one or many heirs. Assigning digital assets in this way is an important step because, as we have seen, most people aren't even doing this now.
