I think the funniest things are the most observant. I also think there’s power in changing your perspective. I also believe that privacy, at its core, is an interdisciplinary subject, best digested when considered something more than a “law thing.” I’m also convinced that we learn best when our guards are down. Laughter does that. And that's why The Privacy Empress blog exists. That’s why I am so excited to be at the helm of the Privacy Empress GIF blog. Inspired by the inaugural site of this type, whatshouldwecallme, this little endeavor is my attempt to imbue the privacy landscape with just a wee more cheekiness, all the while pointing readers to interesting and topical articles that inform the good ole fashioned way. I’ll be reacting to a handful of privacy- and data protection-related headlines with a GIF or two, each cycle of The Privacy Advisor. Check back to this hub for updates, but don’t forget to explore the full tumblr blog to catch up on any posts you may have missed. — The Privacy Empress
I'll come right out and say it: March is undoubtedly the worst month of the year. But that's ok. We have each other — and a host of new privacy reactions to get us through.
As you wait out the worst 31 days of the whole 365 (sorry, March babies), make sure you're all caught up to date on past reactions on the full Tumblr blog, here; it has more GIFs, quips, and other witticisms that may be too much for one mere WordPress-based blog post to handle. So, click away toute de suite. And! Prove to me that privacy pros aren't a humorless bunch by sending your own GIF reactions my way. It will give me something to think about beyond my pain.
STAY STRONG, Y'ALL.
