Cemetery 2.0 Connects Real Life Grave to Web 2.0 Fun

Whoever said Web 2.0 is nothing more than a passing phase? With something called Cemetery 2.0, people can connect physical gravestones to online memorials of dead people. Yup. Remember Great Aunt Agnes? Oh what a fighter she was. Now you can link her burial plot to her Facebook account, all her pics on Flickr and other Web 2.0 wholesome fun. Morbid? Certainly, but no one said this bubble was a noble one.

Cemetery 2.0 works by keeping an active satellite Internet connection that keeps ol' bag of bones in constant communication with the Web services. Couldn't make it for Agnes' birthday? Just post a message on her Facebook wall, she'll understand.

The current prototype uses this guy here, who is the great-grandfather of Cemetery 2.0's inventor, Elliott Malkin.

What kind of Web sites would you like to be perpetually linked to? I hope one of them starts with a "Giz" and ends with a "modo."
