The Digital Immortality Institute says we can preserve as much of people as technology can store all aspects of their data: words, pictures, sounds, etc. The cost of preservation technology gets cheaper by the minute. We have the tools to turn this data into representations and display it to the worldand these tools improve daily. These representations already exist, in varying degrees of sophistication, on the World Wide Web. With the necessary legal and financial mechanisms, these representations can be displayed to the worldforever. Digital Immortality.
A digital persona is the digital representation of a person. They can range from simple personal websites to fully interactive artificial persons. DII proposes three classes of digital personas: website, Turing-class, and fully interactive. These correspond to what the technology is capable of today, tomorrow, and in the future.
