Expiring content is content that is only temporarily (ephemerally) relevant, and also part of a larger post, that can and should be (preferably automatically) removed once a particular datetime has passed (the expiration date).
Some URLs to read, extract info from, and expand this article with:

Real World Needs Examples
Examples of IndieWeb sites/posts with content that would benefit from automatic expiry.
This post: http://tantek.com/2014/308/b2/my-first-year-november-project#half-marathon-hills-track has a couple of pieces of temporal content I would have liked to have expire automatically:
- " (Reminder: NovemberProject 2014 Yearbook Photos Are Tomorrow!) " - an entire paragraph I'd have liked to have disappear automatically once the referenced event had passed.
- "hopefully this Sunday at the Berkeley Half. " - have it expire and be replaced by a placeholder of some sort until I update it with my finishing time and other info.
What would be a good way (UX) for the user to select and indicate that some content should be expired when?
What would be a good way to store that certain sections of content should be expired?
