Hello James, hi all,

please consider using <> tags as a preemptive
opt-out measure to oppose face recognition.

It's a completeley free qr-code (at no cost in CC-BY license):
you can wear it as a button or print it on stickers or t-shirt
(ready-mades availabe at zazzle, but you can craft your own).
The qr-code will redirect to the site where your opt-out
will is clearly stated.

Face recognition is becoming more and more pervasive for the most
frivolous reasons... see my tweets @dontTag .
