Guest: Jed Brubaker, Assistant Professor, Information Science, University of Colorado Boulder What would you like to have happen to your Facebook account when you die? Do you want it frozen in time and turned into a digital memorial? Or would you rather it be deleted? You can actually make that choice right now thanks to the work of Jed Brubaker, a founding faculty member in the department of information science at the University of Colorado Boulder. Brubaker worked with Facebook to develop a more sensitive way to handle a person’s profile after death.
