What's really going to be a problem is when facial recognition software gets good enough to spot you in other people's photos. You might have the brains not to post pics of the time you got drunk at college and threw the couch out the window on Facebook, but was everyone present as concerned for your future as you?

And every girl whose jerkass ex decided to get revenge for being dumped by posting those "private" pictures she took for him is in even worse shape.

Yes, teaching dumbasses not to worry about about the consequences of their actions is sure to take them far in life.

Nothing ever goes away on the Internet. Ever.

That is all.

Boy, it sure is a great thing that there's no way to cache the internet or anything...

Good luck taking this one back

Pfft... I'd hire either of them based on that photo alone.

I might even consider showing up to office parties.

Or they could teach them how not to be stupid in the first place, before handing over a degree.

Google his name and up pops his LinkedIn page with a listing of the jobs he's held in digital media and the "500+ connections" badge of honor.

So he's an e-slut, connecting for the sake of connecting. Not really a badge of honor in my view.

I seem to have been a rather successful basketball player in Iowa in the mid nineties.

My more noteworthy achievements aren't on Google or Facebook. Buried in the credits of journal articles that aren't indexed by Google and on databases which aren't public.

My Facebook is purposely tame in large part to not cause a schism in my friend list.

I read somewhere recently how a corporate recruiter was highly suspicious that the candidate she was considering had no presence on the internet at all beyond professional networking sites. I'm not sure that the candidate was passed over but I think the the recruiter felt more reassured by someone with some kind of social presence rather than someone who appeared to have sterilized it.

Every day I am more and more thankful that I graduated before the internet and cell phones. There are some questionable film-photos of me in the backs of dusty old photo albums scattered across the northeast, but the worst of my shenanigans never hit the tubes.

Also, my name was common at one time but is now on the unpopular swing of the pendulum, so while I have namesakes they're mostly older and by now boring.
