It made us wonder: what happens to all those emails, pictures, and videos you've put on the web when you're no longer there to pay the monthly fees, and no one knows your password? Tech blogger Corvida Raven, from the She-geeks blog, says everyone should have a plan to pass on access to their online identity.  So does Jeremy Toeman, who started a company that helps you keep track of all your online accounts and will inform your loved ones of your passwords after you die.
