Has anyone seen the first episode of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror, series 2? (If you haven't, the Black Mirror episodes are well worth watching!) Anyway, the ep was about new tech that could analyse a person's online and social media 'footprint' and create a convincing simulation after their death.

Well, looks like reality is catching up with Brooker's imagination in weird and wonderful (i.e. creepy) ways:

(Even though I doubt that this works well at present, I can definitely see such an offer becoming more and more refined... Brr.)

Wow, That is really weird. I have never seen Black mirror. I will have to check it out. Sounds like an interesting show.

It might be more fun to set up TWO executors that know completely different sides of you, JUST to keep it interesting.

And I'll look at Black Mirror now as well. Thanks for the heads up Thirth Wink
