You own your image

These days everybody syncs their address book from their computer, into the cloud, on to their smartphone. And along the way, it picks up your profile photo. Like it or not. Google is taking this one step further: Android phones will look up your G+ profile photo and display it when you call someone. And you will make your impression.

Check your profile photos. Do you look like a dork? This would be great time to change that.

The only picture of me Google will find, is me hiding behind my prefered toy. On ervery single photo of the last twenty years I look like a terminally ill rat. The world does not have to bear this. It's hard enough for me every morning.

So you are hiding in the cellar?

Autsch!

Rats don't hide in the cellar... they live in the cellar.

They hide under your bed....

I have DIFFERENT profile pictures for the usual suspects, even .. drumroll .. Twitter. They're all ok. Through the miracles of cloud-based-propagation (sounds like shortwave radio) friends and colleagues get a different picture, depending where their device saw me first, time of day, type of device .. there are too many parameters, its more or less arbitrary.

Well, you control your image.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
