I leave all my assets to my spouse, and all my data to be managed by…?
Life used to be so simple. A person would die and their house, bank accounts and shares were all easily identifiable. The house would contain drawers of private letters and photographs, all dealt with by the Executors of the Will. But now, a person dies receiving hardly any hard copy post. Their life is charted in the on-line ether. A whole life is recorded in Facebook check-ins, Instagram images, Tick Tok videos, and banging playlists.
