In the spring semester of 2008 me and 6 other students took a course on creating business models. We designed from the ground up an idea of a small non/low-profit company that would enable people to deliver important documents or messages to loved ones to help them sort things out after their death. The main components of this idea would be a website where people could confidentially manage things. The system would then be connected to a governmental system to get notified about deceased individuals to know when to deliver the information.
Today I bumped into a Slashdot article about a website providing about the same service in the UK. The funny thing is we didn’t know about it when we designed ours. Great minds think alike I guess.
