The Times had an article today called "As Facebook Users Die, Ghosts Reach Out" (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/18/technology/18death.html?th&emc=th).
I'm not a big FB person, but I went there today after reading the article just to check out what was new. I'm friends with a couple of folks in this group, and there, among others, as a newly recommended friend was Laura Ryan, whose profile is still up and running.
The article ends with:
