The basis of his talk was an article, “Gravesites and Websites:” A Comparison of Memorialisation” by Connor Graham and other authors. The article describes the increasing use of websites to remember the dead, and how the relationships between the living and the dead are changed by this new medium. A gravesite is now an offline memorial and Facebook and other apps supply an online place to remember the dearly beloved.

Questions about a new view of heaven in somewhat different clouds are raised by these ideas.
