DeadSocial are making this service free for celebrities who signup in the coming weeks.
James Norris (Founder, DeadSocial) will be presenting the thought provoking platform onstage and has called out for celebrity tech lovers and innovative thinkers such as Stephen Fry, Ashton Kutcher and Charlie Sheen to get in contact via: firstname.lastname@example.org or by a "tweet of support".
James Norris went on to say “it would be great to get a couple of celebrities to agree to use the platform ahead of our launch in Amsterdam. DeadSocial is an innovative way of addressing death, our digital legacy and communication. It would be a huge boost for us to have some celebrity support ahead of the event.
