You know what you can do with your selfie sticks

Pleased to read that New York museums are banning selfie sticks. I can think of nothing more tasteless than standing in front of a breathtaking piece of art and taking a photo of yourself gurning in front of it…. except for maybe doing it front of the city’s 9/11 memorial.

Still, we seem to live in a society where we expect to insert ourselves in the centre of everyone else’s story. There’s a longer piece to be put together on what selfie sticks say about us… But I’d have to write about Brian Williams so let’s leave it there.
