What is an avatar?
If like me you work in the online world, you could be forgiven for thinking that an avatar is a picture or photograph used to represent yourself in online communities.
Yet, every definition I’ve found lists another, older definition in first place, and I found this interesting…
The wikipedia disambiguation page, the Google define:avatar & dictionary.com pages and more all say this of the word Avatar:>the manifestation of a Hindu deity (especially Vishnu) in human or superhuman or animal form.
Who knew huh?
