Who’s Responsible for It?
In short, you are solely responsible for your own digital content. As we said earlier, you’re at the center of it and it’s through your curation that it’s all connected. After you die, those connections may cease to exist and your collection of content can drift apart. With physical things, that’s exactly how it happens. After an individual’s death, the surviving family comes to the residence, divides up the possessions, and takes them as their own. Suddenly the original collection no longer exists.
You have a chance to change that. One of the unique features of digital things is that two exact copies can exist or one copy can be accessed in multiple places at one time. Your digital content can remain connected to you, but still be in the care of your heirs. It’s a possibility that’s quite exciting.
