Good news is on the horizon for digital estate planning. We can expect greater awareness in the coming years that will address issues like managing changing file formats and limits to preservation. We can also expect new legal and technical standards to be established. Technological research and development are creating new tools to create your digital estate plans, send final email notifications, create online memorials, and secure your digital legacy after your death.
Using current technology, you can only pass on your digital content to your heirs. In the future, we may have the opportunity to create a permanent archive that is relevant for history and future generations to appreciate.
