Death Goes Hi-Tech

Forget about the pilgrimage to Graceland or The Dakota or Chelsea Hotel. Modern day grievers for the rich and famous turn to the web to express their grief and get their celeb death fix. Anna Nicole Smith’s tragic death is the latest example of how we now grieve.

Fans of Anna Nicole Smith aren’t making pilgrimages to the place where she spent her final days. They’re not leaving flowers. They’re not gathering in crowds to express their grief. Instead, emotions are being expressed in a way as uniquely modern as Smith’s fame — on blogs, Web pages and online message boards where true fans battle naysayers to get their voices heard.
