Salvaging Electronic Last Words

from the memorials dept

The Washington Post has an article about people trying to save digital communications from people lost in the September 11 tragedy. People are storing emails, keeping voicemails, and even keeping cell phone service active in order to call up and hear the “leave a message” messages of those who were lost. Somewhat creepy, but understandable.
