would you let the internet pick your avatar?

This is an old story - but it's completely relevant to a decision you make all the time: your avatar.

We were joking last week about Plaid's newest employee Ausra, and how "difficult" she was being about picking the right headshot for her announcement on Brand Flakes (girls. sigh.) Ms. Herr quickly chimed in supporting Ausra with some background on how the Ms. Herr avatar came to be.

Like a true social media icon, Ms. Herr crowdsourced her avatar. Photographer Tyson Crosbie posted 16 shots, and the internet voted. The end result (while awesome) is different than what Ms Herr would have picked herself.

Would you leave your avatar up to the internet?
