Dalla quarta di copertina
Almost without realizing it, we have stopped saving our memories in photo albums, home movies, and letters, and have transitioned to almost total digital storage of such assets and information. Bank statements and credit card bills that we used to receive by mail and file away are now stored and accessed on the internet. If we don’t take steps to make all this information available to our heirs, our personal legacies could be lost forever. Written by the creators of thedigitalbeyond.com, this book explains the challenges, and offers solutions to make sure survivors can have access to this valuable material. It also explores different online memorial sites, which can do everything from notifying your email list when you die, to providing a place where survivors can post their memories.
John Romano and Evan Carroll are the founders of TheDigitalBeyond.com, a leading online resource that explores death and digital legacy. As researchers and speakers, they are devoted to helping individuals secure their digital assets for posterity. Their work has been covered by CNN, NPR, The New York Times, Obit Magazine, the Orlando Sentinel, and The Austin Chronicle. With backgrounds in design and information science, together they have over twenty years’ experience making the web a more useful and enjoyable place.

Unfortunately, it encounters a problem that many contemporary books focussing on technology suffer from - by the time a book is published some material is already dated. For example, this book suggests that photos should be culled so that more interesting ones do not get lost amongst the thousands of others - but already software is doing this job so in the future "more" will be better and a picture search application will quickly find what you want; in the book there is quite an emphasis on still photos and little comment about video - yet video is rapidly taking over as a preferred way to record experiences.
A problem in trying to grapple with the concept of a digital afterlife is conceptualising what the term might eventually mean. Is it just about preserving digital material acquired during a life time? Is it about allowing on going discourse between people in the form of a "memorial site"? Is it about setting up a digital persona that people in the future might interact with? And how can people go about creating material that they may intentionally wish leave behind rather than relying on existing material that they will leave behind? Is it about all of these things and more? These questions are raised in the book but not discussed in any substantive manner. I felt this was a bit of a let down.
The authors of this book acknowledge that it is a beginning and that we probably don't know all the questions yet - let alone the answers. For me, with a vested interest in this area, I did not feel I learned a lot that was new, and some of my current questions were not addressed by the authors. But, for someone who is new to the idea of a digital afterlife it is probably worth a read.
