I posted this photo one month ago, stating credits unknown
at the time, as I didn't find who the photographer was. As I said, this photo has already made rounds on the Interwebs and social networks. Do a google image search, and you'll see for yourself.
1 month later, this same photo appears in my stream again, through reshares, this time with the name of some guy pasted on it. As far as I understand, after checking his stream where he does the same on all the stuff he shares, he might not declare copyright on the photo, but just publicizing his name on Google+ or other website, as the sharer, and obviously confusing people...
This behaviour is bad to me. What do you think?
I know many on Google+ are already fighting against this kind of "appropriation" of others' work to get fame and recognition.
Sharing is good. But this kind of "entitlement" isn't... Not crediting isn't either.
Through what I found, it seems that this photo originates from Jean-Pierre Hallet's work in Congo (Belgian adventurer, naturalist, humanitarian and art collector).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Pierre_Hallet
You can learn more on the Osani Circle Game
played by the Efe children here:http://www.connectingdotz.com/osani-circle-game.html
(Your purchase of the poster helps The Pygmy Fund.)Efé children of the Ituri Forest in Zaire (Rep. of Congo, central Africa) begin the Osani game by sitting in a circle, feet touching, all connected. Each child in turn names a round object like the sun (oi), the moon (tiba), a star (bibi) an eye (ue) and then goes on to name a figurative expression of “round” like the circle of the family, togetherness, a baby in the womb, or the cycle of the moon. As players fail to come up with a term that is “circular” they are eliminated from the game. Eventually, only one remains. Tradition has it that this player will live a long and prosperous life.+Susan Fassberg
am I right?
This is an old photo (credits unknown
), that went round the social networks...
But, what best illustration for the need of circles
. #Google +
Wouldn't that be a nice way to "introduce the concept" +Guy Kawasaki +Denis Labelle
