Our book, Your Digital Afterlife

Your Digital Afterlife Book CoverWe’ve hinted about our book a few times, but never properly announced it here. In case you didn’t know, we’ve spent the last several months planning, writing and editing, Your Digital Afterlife: When Facebook, Flickr and Twitter Are Your Estate, What’s Your Legacy? To our knowledge it’s the first book about digital death and legacy.

In the book we explain how our culture is in the midst of a shift from analog to digital and the complexities of digital life are challenging the the way we prepare for, experience and deal with death. After highlighting the issues at hand we provide a step-by-step guide for individuals looking to secure their digital assets.

You can read more about the book at its website.

    Hello, I just heard you guys on NPR today and I am glad to hear that you have written a book on this subject. I trust NPR to have guests that truly know a lot about a topic before they have them on one of their shows. That being said I am on my way over to Amazon to get one. I will write a review once I finish reading. Thanks, Joseph W. aka WaterRabbit, Cape Cod, MA, USA
