The DOs and DON’Ts of Selfies at HP

Selfies, a photo self-portrait usually taken with a mobile phone, are as much a hallmark of our online lives as funny cats and Rick Astley.  There are even extreme-sports-inspired tools like the Selfie Stick now available for people to improve their selfie experience and photos.

 

Whether you love them or hate them, they are everywhere and while they can be a fun way to let your online frenemies know that your life is more interesting than their lives, problems associated with the popular practice are beginning to manifest themselves at major events around the world. For example, a British man could face fines of around $4,100 for taking one during the Running of the Bulls, and riders and organizers of the Tour de France this year railed against selfie-taking fans who endangered themselves and the riders in order to get a coveted shot with their heroes.

 

Like everyone else, we at HP like to indulge in a little selfie self-reflection every once and a while, and our little corner of the world definitely has no shortage of selfie-worthy people, events, and nature, but clearly some selfie guidelines are in order. To avoid being mauled by a bull BMW or clipped by an angry disruptive cyclist start-up guy, here are some quick DOs and DON’Ts for taking selfies in life, work, and play.  

 

DO:

Take a selfie in front of our humble origins, the famed HP Garage at 367 Addison Ave, where Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard built, among other things, our very first product.

 

Take a picture of yourself standing in front of our beautiful corporate headquarters.

Take a photo of yourself and some friends enjoying lunch at a local restaurant.

DON’T:

Don’t take a selfie in your boss’ office or cube. C’mon, guys! Your boss is too busy to be distracted by your vain attempts to look like you’re involved in top-level projects.

Do you work in one of our top-secret product development labs? Cool! DON’T TAKE A SELFIE IN THERE!

And for the love of Pete, please don’t take a selfie while driving or crossing the street! Remember, these are only meant to be guide. If you have questions about whether a situation or place is OK for a selfie, let us know in the comments section and we’ll address them as soon as we’re done working on this top-secret project with Meg Whitman.
