Please share to show my pupils how far a photo can go (even if you don’t want it to!)

Not about everything

Sharing this, because it seems an interesting lesson.

I am teaching E-safety to my pupils at the moment and wanted to try a little experiment. Please share this photo and see how far it gets, I want to show my students how easily photos etc can go viral, even when you may not want them to. Share it and see how far it goes!

    i try to teach this lesson to as often as possible.

    it is seldom learned.

    in the early digital age (with downsizing rampant) i had done some artwork for a coworker. two years later a less innocent version of it was placed on my desk by a rather angry director. threats (her’s) and insubordination (mine) ensued. the saving grace in this incident was a previous fiasco had taught me the value of anonymity…the work wasn’t signed and i had kept the source document.

    in the years after that i received my work in several forms. it’s morphology had been a marvel and this was just on a corporate intRAnet.

    the embarassing selfie can turn into a life-long liability, seemingly innocuous remarks can damage a person’s life or career for as long as it exists in the ether. back in the dark ages it was the box of faded polaroids you found when your mom died. now unless you use instagram the images don’t fade.

    then there is plagirism…and we all do it to some degree. in the late nineties i did some 3d artwork that was posted on a japanese website. a couple of years ago one the images was cropped and used for a header on another artist’s blog. i must admit some gratification that it was deemed to be good enough for it’s use, but a certain annoyance at it’s lack of attribution.

    by now if you create content you have an example.

    the upshot would seem to be keep it to yourself. this urge to share the gory minutiae of our lives can have serious implications downstream.

    maybe excerise more effective impulse control is in order.
