The Mission

This website emerges in July of 2011, as the result of a research leading to the completion of the degree Master in Multimedia at Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto, Portugal.

We explore the application of the concept of thanatosensitivity over personal information management, in order to reduce the impact on the bereaved after an individual’s death.

Objectives of our work were to contribute to cross-disciplinary discussion on interwoven topics of personal information management, online personal identity, thanatosensitivity, digital death and digital afterlife, while we introduce Thanatosensitive Information Management (TIM).

We created this website in order to provide a place to consult and exchange the information about TIM and to make it accessible and understandable by a broader public.
