You've Died? There's An App For That Too!

We all have to shuffle off this mortal coil at some point; but these days we may leave behind quite a mess, with all the social media accounts, email and so on that we will leave flapping in the breeze. But, fellow boomers and seniors, as with almost everything else, there is an app for that; Perpetu
Founded by an intellectual property lawyer and banker, Perpetu allows you to decide what happens to your “online assets” after you die even if you don’t have a will.
First, you sign up for Perpetu with your email, Facebook or Twitter account. Once you are logged in, you will see a list of services you can add to Perpetu. There are several options for each. For example, you can schedule a final wall post for your Facebook profile, or download photos, your status updates and private messages and have the files emailed to certain people. On GitHub, developers can select repositories to make public after they die. Your LinkedIn contacts can downloaded and forwarded to a colleague or someone else.
