anecdote #39: virtual real time

read a short story (author forgotten)
the premise haunting...

a manic, digitally insular man
parcelled his work projects check-ins
personal letters, blogs, bills,
were generated automatically

continued semblance of steady life
after death, took months
for anyone to miss him.

Hmmm, scary.

SF scenario - one kind of immortality might be arranged ...

might indeed. it's not unusual for 3 of my blogs to autopost a week or three without my intervention.
