Model Anina reports that her agency has told her to stop blogging. She’s the latest in a growing list of professionals who face the consequences of their choice to step out of role (if ever so slightly) because by blogging they disturb the uneasy boundary between private and public life.
On a general note, I see here an instantiation of ‘exposure‘, the powerlessness challenge that personal publishing technologies pose to social institutions in general – from family to industry to governments – who can no longer control nor protect people like they just kind of naturally did before. I also think it’s pretty clear that we haven’t even started dealing with exposure on a large scale yet.
Hopefully Anina manages to sort it out with her agency and keep blogging.
