Default How to digitally remember those who have passed...

Video slideshow is another.

Hi Eva,

Yes, a memorial scrapbook is one such business. There are people who will create professional custom-made scrapbooks for their customers...

A couple of others that spring to mind are a kind of digital "scrapbook" which can be put on CD, DVD, or on a memory stick/USB drive. The good thing about these is they can also contain audio and video.

Another one is a memorial website, where people create a website, full of pictures, words, and possibly audio and video, dedicated to the memory of the one who passed away...

Here's a very lengthy article about your "digital estate" from the New York Times, from last year... There is a business opportunity in "preserving" these, so that these don't disappear into the ether after someone dies...

Cyberspace When You’re Dead

Suppose that just after you finish reading this article, you keel over, dead. Perhaps you’re ready for such an eventuality, in that you have prepared a will or made some sort of arrangement for the fate of the worldly goods you leave behind: financial assets, personal effects, belongings likely to have sentimental value to others and artifacts of your life like photographs, journals, letters. Even if you haven’t made such arrangements, all of this will get sorted one way or another, maybe in line with what you would have wanted, and maybe not.

But many of us, in these worst of circumstances, would also leave behind things that exist outside of those familiar categories. Suppose you blogged or tweeted about this article, or dashed off a Facebook status update, or uploaded a few snapshots from your iPhone to Flickr, and then logged off this mortal coil. It’s now taken for granted that the things we do online are reflections of who we are or announcements of who we wish to be. So what happens to this version of you that you’ve built with bits? Who will have access to which parts of it, and for how long?
You can read the rest here...

Of course, this is a business opportunity in itself (as are several other things on that earlier list)... Though it's a good strategy to focus on one opportunity, and not get too diverted (unless it's not working out)...

Best wishes,
