This *Nature* storyette, by Dave Langford, is very droll:

"New Hope for the Dead"


...The simplest scheme is what our client-advisors amusingly call
"being dead for tax reasons". Maintaining your full activity as an
EGAN requires continuing exabyte-scale storage capacity and very
substantial 24/7 processor power. We can enormously reduce the
associated expenses by storing you in static, compressed Zip format
for reactivation in a time of better economic weather.
