In this Ted Talk, Monica Lewinsky addresses her scandal of 1998 and how she “was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become constant — and can turn deadly. In a brave talk, she takes a hard look at our online culture of humiliation, and asks for a different way.
This is a good watch for anyone concerned with your online reputation or cyberbullying or professional journalism.
