Seth Godin has linked to a set of videos taken of teachers by students using phones. He sees them as a challenge to market education properly. There are a lot of things to be concerned about when you watch them. Be advised there is some strong (whatever that means) language on them.
The reaction I had was more to do with people who pretend they are something they’re not. I’ve talked about this before in regards to heroes needing to be heroic all of the time, even when people aren’t watching. The increasing ability of technology to allow anyone to secretly record video should be scary to those living double or triple lives.
More than ever you need to be genuine – to have integrity. If you’re claiming to be caring, responsible, honest and respectful and act otherwise some of the time, beware the phone-carrying critic. Your lies or your tantrums could be shown to a worldwide audience.
But it all goes back to integrity. If you’re honest to yourself and to those around you you’re safe.
