    You’re not alone tbh but I think peoples awareness is going to increase over the next few years as we rely on the web more.
    To help businesses in this situation, we’ve developed http://www.crisiscover.co.uk which is a dead man switch concept, it stores the information for you and then monitors you over email/Twitter. If for any reason it can’t contact you after a pre-determined number of checks it will distribute your information.

    It doesn’t aim to get around the Terms Of Service issues or ownership of the information stored there but it goes a long way to reducing the impact of you dying on another

  2. GMail allows to delegate account to some other GMail user. The other person will have access to most of the stuff.
