what happens to your data when you die?


is there an info-structure to support this, if not could there be one
and how would we begin to go about developing one


what does it mean from a legal dimension? Who owns your data, do you 
even have a right to own your data once it is online? If someone takes
 a picture of you, who's property is it? Yours (as it's OF you) or the
person who took it?


What do people generally want to happen to their data? Are people even
thinking about these questions?


What does it mean to disseminate this topic to the public and how does 
one go about it?


Is the system we have at the moment (which ignores death) creating
 harmful social repercussions


What does it mean for people or communities to engage in Digital Archaeology?


What place will the digital information we create today have in future
generation ability to reflect on this period in time?


How is this to be curated or edited, does it need to be? Should all
information be there and free for all to access? Does this include
personal or sentimental information?


How does one go about bequeathing their information to a relative?


Is there such a thing as a digital asset?


What does it mean to be awash in Digital information, how do we stop
our getting lost in an ever expanding Digital footprint?


How does 'perfect memory' ie digital memory change our cultural identity?
