After your final status update


What will happen to your online personality after you die? Some philosophical questions for you to chew over along with your breakfast.


'I am wondering if it is even possible to capture even one human personality using a computer? It seems there are far too many connections, memories and experiences, both old and new, along with the underlying psychology and brain structures, neuropeptides and hormones that contribute to and affect "personality" ... the essence of what an individual is. To successfully capture a human personality in a computer, it seems that we have to first understand the human brain andmind, and this insight doesn't seem like it's going to happen anytime soon.'
