What happens in Second Life after a real life death? See Designing Worlds “Legacy” – now on the web

In this week’s episode of Designing Worlds we look at a sadly all too real phenomenon: when people disappear from Second Life and – often – from real life too.

What legacy do they leave behind? And what steps should we be taking to protect our legacy – and make sure our friends understand what has happened?

We talk to Jo Yardley, who has written a fascinating article on this issue, and other people who have been affected too – both by people who have died, and people who have suddenly disappeared, sometimes with devastating consequences for those who knew them, worked with them, and loved them.

Guest on the show include Jo Yardley, KT Syakumi, Stevie Basevi, Kess Viiperi, and Adele Ward.
