MIT Press requested a photo of Hilde and me to use in promoting our World of Warcraft anthology (which you can already preorder on Amazon!). Makes sense. Sure. But both Hilde and I enjoy having our photos taken about as much as we enjoy going to the dentist.

Hilde Corneliussen and Jill Walker Rettberg

Fortunately the university has a photographer especially for these sorts of occasions. And fortunately, digital photography allowed us to weed out the horrible photos and pick this really fairly nice one. That’s Hilde on the left and me on the right, in case you’re wondering.

I don’t think I’ll show you the one of me on my own though. Oh dear.

By the way, if you want to use this photo to promote our beloved book in some way go ahead, steal use it, we want you to.

    What’s the license?

    It’s probably copyrighted to the University of Bergen, but they definitely want it used for press and promotion purposes. So not strictly speaking a CC licence, but please reuse it. Please don’t chop off our heads and glue them onto elephants or anything like that.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?
