Ok, this is so random I just have to share it with you guys. When I visited Beijing, now a couple of years ago, I took this picture in a Beijing park:
It’s a funny sign! Then, today, I listened to a talk by Seth Godin (and here, his personal website). The talk was held at a TED conference, but published online so I watched the video. Suddenly, in one of his slides, my photo pops up, to my great surprise. I mean, Seth is a famous guy, a good speaker, and TED is a great conference. Don’t believe me? Check the below screenshot, or click it to go straight to the video:
This if fun of course! The only nagging problem is that I was never notified of this, and I was not attributed. My photo is Creative Commons, with Attribution as part of it. That would be a link, name, etc. But I never see those attributions in slide images. I guess it is a grey zone… If Seth wants more photos from me, I will happily provide them if he asks first 😉
UPDATED: Seth contacted me and explained how he got the photo. Apparently, it’s being spread around without attribution. Ah well, I’m still happy my photo was used :). Thanks Seth!
