Ever wonder what happens to your digital life when you die? Well, you're not alone. It's become a global issue as we've lived so much of our lives connected to the internet - each of us oughly 6 hours and 42 minutes per day on average - during the past 25 years. Imagine all those priceless photos and emails, documents and financial accounts, social media and other content. The list goes on and on. What about an online will or medical directives? Access to your devices? Whether you want to preserve it all or hit the delete button, doing nothing is not a strategy.
Digital Legacy: Take Control of Your Online Afterlife by Daniel Sieberg and Rikard Steiber provides the historical context of how we got here, pragmatic guidance on what to do and a vision for what the future of human stories and memories holds for all of us. As two former Google executives and long-time tech advocates, Sieberg and Steiber provide a clear-eyed and objective view on how to solve and tackle this challenge. They've even started a company since the book was released called GoodTrust - an online platform to help anyone preserve and create their digital legacy.
There's no turning back - so what's yours going to be?
