    Interesting...

    What do you want to happen to your data when you pop your clogs? Do you have any plans in place?

    Do you actually care what will happen with the data after you are no more here? But it is good to have an option!

    hahah like the guys said - it's cool to have an option. I think every user should have an additional text box in their registration form - email my data to - and that's it. all your data to be collected and send to the desired person.

    There will be a divide between the people which have no data of any value and those that consider the info quite valuable.

    I quite like the idea to be able to pass the account data to someone else and do so already with other services such as server access, I have already outlined what should happen to certain web properties should i pop my clogs, the other half isnt internet savvy and if i got hit by a car or something horrible then with out instruction everything would be lost with in 6 - 12 months when the server bills run out or domains expire.

    I have detailed information on access instructions, valuations and where/or who see should be contacting to sell everything if im no longer around. At 31 it may seem a bit morbid but with out it i could potentially leave her with nothing with out this info which wouldnt be good.

    I think people should be concerned with data after death,
    I'm in the same boat as Adam my wife doesn't know the differance between a .com & a .co, let alone what to do with premium domains, I've left instructions and access info etc,
