Dead Man’s Switch Beta
The new version only contains about the same functionality as the old one, for now, but we would appreciate your help in testing it. We have planned for it a multitude of features, such as configurable intervals, file attachments, different ways of checkin, etc, but we need your help to make sure that everything is working properly.
We can only speculate that the underlying code received a rewrite to serve as a foundation for new features to come.
DataInherit Password Import For Firefox
The folks over at DataInherit tweeted about a quick and easy way to get started with their service by exporting saved passwords from Firefox. It’s a great way to get started, but also a great opportunity to remember those accounts that you may have forgotten about. Detailed instructions are available on their website.
World Without Me
World Without Me is a new digital estate planning and posthumous email service that’s in closed beta right now. Based in India, the service offers “Dispatches” as emails scheduled for the future (not just at death) and a “Vault” for storing usernames and passwords. More interesting is the “Footprint” component, which is an aggregation and archive service for social media:
It’s your Journal that treasures everything you did and thought about. Archive you digital footprint to create your autobiography on the go. Aggregate everything digital of significance (Facebook status updates, Tweets, Emails, and Documents) and share it with only the ones that matter.
Our email boxes are full of messages from new digital afterlife services. We’ll be adding those to our growing Digital Death and Afterlife Online Services List soon. If you have any industry news to share, feel free to drop us a line.
