Selfie Nation

…or more like the the UNFFTPOS (UN Force For The Preserved Selfies). What the hell happened? Not that long ago the selfiie was tired, a relic from MySpace days, circa 2004. Then it blew back with a vengeance. Was it the Obama selfiie moment at the Nelson Mandela memorial or the Ellen DeGeneres catharsis at the Oscars?

No, I say. It was the convergence of neo-narcissism (a post for another day), camera phone adoption, instagram and GoPro, the company that pushed POVs from extreme to mainstream.

And thanks to YOU for the inspiration in this post. You know who you are.
