2013 (English)In: 9th annual Student Interaction Design Research Conference (SIDeR) on Empowering Interactions, Aarhus, Denmark, April 9-10, 2013., 2013, 2- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents insights on designing interactions for digital immortality after physical death, and will focus on points of interactions with the digital archive for those that remain alive.Current tools for digital memento and digital archive management are not intended to function for post-life communications and do not sufficiently consider the longevity of content, digital legacies, and relevancy of content over time.Conclusions and insights from graduate thesis research are presented here to inform appropriate interactions for digital immortality. It will include how cultural legacies of the past can inspire digital legacies for the future. Also, correlations will be incorporated from a survey addressing mementos, digital legacies, digital will planning, digital archives, and the death of loved ones.
