Preserving My Memory in a Digital Drop Box
John Neff
Commonly when a loved one dies we receive a few items in a small box that is meant to serve as a lasting remembrance of the departed individual. Traditionally those boxes are filled with photos, papers, and maybe a few other physical keepsakes. However, the traditional remembrance box often does not effectively preserve an individual’s voice, their mannerisms, or their personalities. In this presentation, John Neff discusses some ways that he utilizes cloud storage and social media to create a digital drop box that is designed to preserve a more encompassing memorial of his life.
