Transfer of an estate to an individual's heirs after his death may be an orderly or thoroughly disorganized process. It depends on a four-letter word -- WILL. Every person, eighteen (18) years of age or over should make one. This important document is a legal declaration of the way an individual wants
his property distributed.
Whether the estate is large or small, it is desirable to transfer what you own with a properly executed will -- whether you are a man or woman, married or single. Those without wills may leave their survivors in financial insecurity or downright frustration. It is to the advantage of both the individual and his family or his close friends that s/he execute a will.
Contrary to general opinion, frequently the smaller amounts involved, the greater trouble when there is no will. Squabbles over a few thousand dollars an be more bitter than fights over many thousands.
And of course, there are those who squabble while the Dying-Is-Breathing-Still (DIBS) is still very much alive.
Enter ami-inthewillornot.com, where the Will is viewable to those who obtain a user password "by any means necessary" from the aforementioned DIBS Attorney - in order to gain entry to the er, viewing chamber, and squabble more or less. Terms or Grounds for Modifications may be outlined by the DIBS as s/he sees fit in the presence of an Attorney in order to prevent coercion on part of family members. Much like a Net Poll, you the DIBS can see who has also seen the will, how often they've logged on, etc.

|And does it send out e-invitations to the Dead-Isn't-Breathing-Sorry's funeral?
|You are right that everybody shold make a will, but even if you do die intestate, your money still gets doled out to rellies.
|Can't say I'd want to put my will on the web though, unless it was massively general (e.g. "I leave everything to [charity x], except the porcelain figurine of the young boy micturating into a chamber pot, which I bequeath to the Victoria and Albert Museum).
|I forgot to mention it's encrypted, heh
