One of the regulars at a local game night takes lots of candid photos and posts them to the group’s Facebook page. I idly click through them when he uploads a new batch, looking to see what other people were playing. When I saw one recent photo, I looked at the group of players and didn’t recognize one of them. Who’s that, I thought, before realizing it was me.1
On a tangentially related note, here’s a picture of me that was taken for our department website.2 I think it looks like me, but what do I know?
- I wondered about permission to post clear pictures of other people and ultimately opted just to blur the whole background.
- We’ve had to rebuild the department website to fit the new templates, but mostly it’s been a matter of figuring out how to preserve old functionality within the new constraints.
