The Great Server Farm

It’s probably more appropriate to call it, as techie Ryan Singel quickly did, the Google Death Manager. The Death Manager lets you tell Google what to do with the data from all of your Google accounts, including most intimately, your Gmail messages, if your account goes inactive, presumably because you have gone to the great server farm in the sky. You can have the data simply deleted after a set period of inactivity or you can, will-style, hand it over to trusted contacts.
