What are bits?

What are atoms?

What do you gain when you convert from atoms to bits?

What do you lose when you convert from atoms to bits?

What makes a person want to visualise their death, or the

death of a loved one in a virtual space?

Do virtual graveyards provide a space for long distant families to grieve together?

Can we create a place of mourning which is non-site specific?

What happens to our digital information when we die?

What happens to our personal computer when we die?

Is it possible to remove all information on a computer and return it to a pristine state, rebirth? Could we assist a computer in committing suicide?

Is there room for a profession of computer auditing? What would the security issues be behind this profession?

In the future will people have a section of their wills that deals with their digital selves?

Do all our virtual identities die with us?

Can digital information become a form of immortality?

What happens when our information dies before we do?
