Death 2.0: How to Die on the Digital Frontier

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In the 21st century, the oldest profession in the world must co-exist with the digital frontier. With this combination, a burgeoning new industry is emerging, a whole new way to understand how we 'do' death in our culture. We call this the 'Death Space'.
The Death Space is everywhere; videos, blogging, websites, and free online tools helping to take the fear away from death and dying. At the same time websites are helping you to decide what to do with your physical corpse and real world assets, there are a growing number of new resources dedicated to sorting through your online death,
ensuring you a strange kind of interweb immortality, post mortem.
Join a widow and an undertaker (Chanel from Get Your Shit Together and Caitlin from the Order of the Good Death) for a real-world guide to dying in the cloud.
