After Some Thought
February 12, 2006
Well, after lots of consideration I have changed my Flickr account so that my photostream is only visible to people I designate as friends.
It is true that once you put pictures out there on the internet you have no control over what someone does to them and while I can accept that to some degree, I also think I have to make an effort to make it more difficult for people to take them.
At least that is what I think right now at this moment. I may change my mind. I might watermark them. The pictures that is, not the children. Though now that I think about it, it might just be easier to write in permanent marker on the kids’ foreheads than to add a watermark to each individual photo.
I did email the flickr people, for those of you who have asked me, and told them I thought they should ban him from using flickr. They haven’t responded yet. I don’t expect much, there isn’t anything illegal in what the man did, as creepy as it might be.
So if you want to be a friend and I don’t already have you designated as one, send me an email.
Then I can invite you over for slumber parties, where we can do each other’s hair, make prank phone calls to all the cute boys, tell stories and giggle loudly until my
parents kids come downstairs and tell us to keep it down, or else! Oh, and put the bra of whoever falls asleep first in the freezer!
And of course we could take pictures and I could put them up on my website where someone will find them searching for women sleeping together, and then we could collectively freak out and begin the hand wringing anew.
