Comments: Speaking of the superficiality of myspace...

I think itís a great idea that we will be seeing more of, although it needs work.

When my mother died, I wished there was a warm and fuzzy website that I could down load photos, like except for dead people.

When I went to the site the first thing I saw was an ad saying MY DEATH SPACE IS BROUGHT BY HOLLYOOD POLKER.COM and was repeatedly redirected and invited to play online poker with Louie Anderson and Tanya Harding.

As inviting as that may sound, not wanting to play, I passed.

I did eventually get the avalanche victim although he was identified as Death #119

That's a little cold... even for an avalanche victim.

Someone someday is going to make a lot of money by doing this right. Baby Boomers will eat it up.

yeah man... this almost validates the whole myspace thing. and if you look at it, any sort of personal homepage you have on the net, even your blog or something, will remain after your gone. virtual immortality, and all that other science fiction garbage.

OMG, there's something so eerie in this in that it really calls into mind the fine line between life and death... reminds me of when I was 16 and a girl came into a restaurant I worked at. We struck up a conversation about a favorite artist of mine (she a had a keychain) she gave me her name and number as I had some of this artist's stuff that she wanted to buy... two weeks later I looked in the newspaper and her dad had shot her to death. Again... reality slapping you across the face.
