Do You Selfie?

The first line of this article is worth repeating verbatim: “In an act of clairvoyance, Hugh Dornbush and Alex Lasky snatched up the domain Selfie.com two years ago, when the word wasn’t yet a ubiquitous part of the lexicon.”

Because how often does that happen?

Selfie.com is also furthering the idea of the selfie and taking it from a still image to a 24-second video.

In our world of social media, we are increasingly connected and disconnected. The current world is full of groups of people huddled silently, staring at their phones. If Selfie.com takes off, will conversations, albeit mediated by video, return to silent groups? It certainly seems to be Selfie.com’s aim and it will be interesting to watch it manifest!
