When we die

when we die
our web presence will remain
like ghosts.
technology will allow us to animate our spirits
from beyond the grave,
they will continue to interact with the living
uploaded to the cloud,
we will be digital angels
when we die.

Every second 1.8 people die. There are around 500,000,000 Farcebook users. That means in the time it takes you to read this post eight of them will have died, four of them will have been logged in at the time. There are over 70,000,000 WordPress bloggers. One of them will have died while you were reading this. I bet you wish you hadn’t read it now, don’t you?

  1. ….I just hope I don’t get murdered because I hate the idea of some fat, hairy police officer delving into my computer life and staining my nearly sterling reputation when I’m already deceased and can say nothing to explain my (horny masturbating) self. That was a joke, sort of.
