I'm suddenly struck with my own mortality. Officially a senior citizen, I think of all the people I feel close to on the internet - people I've never seen in person, but have corresponded with for over 20 years. Over 20 Years, Maybe 30! If I die, how will they know I've gone? If I am the parent/owner of my internet presence, then it needs a god parent.
I am not surrounded by people as taken with online pen pals as I am, and the tech saviness of those closest to me leaves my internet presence without a god parent.
I'll have to think about this.
