Random Cool Site: MyDeathSpace.com

MySpace has many strange uses. Perhaps one of the oddest is the way that the pages of dead users quickly become tributes to the deceased. Friends leave messages to the deceased, almost always written directly to the dead person, as if the dead have internet access. While I won't debate the theological soundness of that idea, I do find the phenomenon fascinating. Apparently I'm not the only one, because there's now a website, MyDeathSpace.com, that offers related services, including lists of dead people with MySpace pages. Maybe "cool" isn't the right word for this, but it is interesting (i.e., sad, morbid, and odd) reading.
