I had no idea this guy existed, but I've been somewhat transfixed by his blog today.  His last post - put up after his death - has made me think a bit about my own e-death;  I think I might nominate my trustworthy nephew to be in charge of putting up all of my posthumous stuff.

Oh man that totally made me cry. But it was amazing as well.  The internet can be a cesspit, but it's also billions of tiny threads each with the potential to connect us with someone or something remarkable that we would have otherwise known nothing about. I'm really glad I read this.

There are actually commercial services to do this as well.  You can prewrite emails or blog posts or  whatever else and have any one of a number of companies send them out on your death. Your plan is good though too Zebonka, unless of course you and your nephew were victims of the same event.

Wow... I'm speechless.

Thanks for sharing, Zebonka.

Considering we hang out quite a lot, that's not so implausible!  In any case, it definitely got me thinking.  Never hurts to have a plan, considering the inevitability of some things.

Yeah, I was reading his blog (back and forth through odd entries) while I should've been working today.  One can learn a lot from this sort of thing.
