We tend to think that the information we put online, or send to our friends, is temporary. However, Juan Enriquez shares his views (via Ted Talks) on the permanency of online information sharing. Using Andy Warhol, the ancient Greeks, and other examples from history, the case is made that the photographs and other data you share with your friends might just be a permanent part of your history (i.e. your digital tattoo) and available to those that will be hiring/promoting you. See the Ted Talks video here:
