The man who has, perhaps, the best claim to having invented blogging, Dave Winer, writes,
I would like to be able to pay a web company like Amazon or Google a one-time flat fee to host my content for perpetuity. I'd deposit my writing with them, on the web, and not worry about whether or not my heirs will keep paying the hosting bills to keep it alive. Today I'm hosting the weblog of my departed uncle (who I miss terribly!), I don't mind doing it, but what will happen when I pass? I'd gladly pay $10,000 to be sure my site and his survive my death. Long-lived institutions like Harvard University or Mount Auburn Cemetary (in Boston), even insurance companies, could get into this business. Think of it as a personal endowment, it would work like the money richer people leave behind as memorials to their own lives, or lives of loved ones.
If you as a philanthropist are inclined to endow this blog as a perpetual gift to humankind, please let me know. I am thinking of something like a Pyramid, with an open space inside and huge screens for pilgrims to watch the posts stream past, over and over. If cash is collected at the turnstile, it could be a double bottom line social venture. You can have your name as Benefactor appended to each post. Let's deal!
