When you and I die, our kids aren’t going to go to our tombstones, they’re going to fire up our digital twins and talk to them, (John Smart(1) for Business Insider)

Although I have played myself with this idea here and here, it strikes me how similar it is to the old idea of talking to the spirits of the dead. It seems that some ideas are recurring and their forms change with time but their contents remain unchanged. Maybe we are not too creative after all!
