San Franciso Chronicle: “Karin Prangley, an estate-planning attorney in Chicago, became an expert on post-mortem online assets after experiencing first-hand such complications. When her father-in-law had a stroke in 2008, his building supplies business lost between $10,000 and $15,000 because packages continued to arrive at his warehouse and no one had any idea where they were supposed to go. His address book and e-mails were all locked behind password-protected accounts and, eventually, Prangley and other relatives had no choice but to reconstruct her father-in-law’s list of contacts on their own. . . . So what happens to our digital identity when we die? Odds are it will remain trapped in the Internet without someone investing quite some time and effort.”
