gentlemen. San Francisco Weekly published an article yesterday, which takes another look at the epic beardgate and its aftermath. Chris Menning (who’s mentioned in the article btw, reppin kym!) posted his after-thoughts on KYM blog, check it out:
This isn’t the first time that the Internet has made an unlikely star out of someone who was never seeking fame in the first place. Some, like Star Wars Kid, Technoviking, and Boxxy eschew their fame; preferring privacy over recognition.
Most of y’all have cameras on your phone and I’m sure some people use them more frequently than others, for the happy times or the weird, like when Iyanna saw the fight happening on the bus.
do we need some sort of social conventions (as in “common sense”) that will remind us when it’s proper/improper to expose fellow individuals in public sphere? or should the internet always remain one nation under lulz, devoid of moral dilemmas?
EBM story leaves a lot of questions for us. discuss thems.
