Digital tattoos are forever

This fascinating six-minute talk – Your online life permanent as a tattoo – is given by the futurist Juan Enriquez. In this video, he talks about how the information we post online can be compared to a digital tattoo. It provides a great and less patronizing starting point for a discussion in Years 11 and 12 on what we post online. Before the students watch, you might like to ask them to think about what their online presence and a tattoo have in common.

There’s a transcript of the talk, too.
