A former client of mine to me to dinner the other week at a very private Japanese restaurant (kind of a speakeasy, where you needed to know both the hidden-away place and the owner to gain entry) and in the course of our repast we talked about many things, including Facebook. We both concluded that as much as we realize the pros of social networking, we're both of a generation (and maybe of particular personalities) that values privacy perhaps a tad more than the average social networker in their twenties. So I offered to make her an avatar that her friends would recognize as her, yet would still remain anonymous enough to be private. And this is what I did - reminiscent of Julian Opie, intentionally. Thankfully, she really liked it.
