Entrustet: Dealing With Digital Heirlooms
Who will have access to your digital media after you die?
At the PSFK Conference in London in 2009, Richard Banks from Microsoft spoke about digital heirlooms and how we will be passing on these huge personal collections of media to our loved ones when we pass. Dunda spoke about the guilt that many of these people will have about throwing these away and wondered what solutions might be available.
Entrustet may be one of those solutions to help with digital heirlooming. Entrustet offers to help your family gather (and delete) all the digital media you have in the cloud. The system helps users create a secure list of digital assets, allows users to designate heirs and a “Digital Executor”, and helps them decide which assets are transferred to which heirs and which are deleted.
