A Sign of the Times

A colleague sends a video file called "The Guitar Lesson" that actually shows my colleague ... taking an impromptu guitar lesson. Nothing scatological or obscene or even indecorous. Just him, fully clothed and cognitively unimpaired, being instructed in a guitar lick.

But there at the bottom of the email is: Don't send to YouTube.

I doubt this has legal weight, but it does suggest what good manners are in this, the new age of transparency locked in combat with privacy with vanity standing just outside the ring ready to pile on.
