“And it strikes me as odd that those complaining about the constant videoing, photographing and sharing – those shaking their heads at people’s need electronically to document their existences – are often doing so on TV, radio or in newspapers. The complainers are usually people like me, whose job gives them ample opportunities for self-expression. It seems to be people who are blessed with a superfluity of attention who are first to disparage attention-seekers.”
