First off, My Death Space's name makes it sound a lot more twisted and goth than it really is. It's actually an archival site, containing news articles, online obituaries, and other publicly available information about Myspace members that have died. The creator's of the site claim it gives users the opportunity to pay their respects and tributes to the recently deceased MySpace.com members via their comment system.
That being said, it's not a site I plan on using any time in the near future, but I do think it's worth checking out so you don't feel left out on this week's digital buzz. I think one can make a pretty strong argument about exploiting and over exposing the dead, and as Salon.com aptly notes, it's easy to feel "morbid curiosity and ridicule have replaced respect for the deceased at MyDeathSpace, where your life is an open book -- even when you're 6 feet under." See for yourself.
