"This week, the New York Times reported on the forthcoming publication of a new unauthorized biography of the late TV star Anthony Bourdain, who died by suicide in 2018. The story included one particularly striking detail about author Charles Leerhsen's sourcing: "The book's most revealing material comes from files and messages pulled from Mr. Bourdain's phone and laptop, both of which are part of the estate."

It would be easy to skip right over that part of the piece to wade further into the controversy surrounding the book, but if you get to thinking about it, it raises some pretty interesting - and potentially alarming - questions. First among them: If Anthony Bourdain's text messages became part of his estate when he died, does that mean that my text messages will become part of my estate when I die? And does that mean that whoever controls my estate will be able to read all my text messages when I'm dead?"

We better start texting some messages that are not fit to read.
