  • An attempt to avoid the word selfie, especially as used by an official body who can't quite bring themselves to use such a "common" word.

    The Register, February 2015:

    The USA's National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB's) investigation into a 2014 light plane crash has come to the conclusion that the pilot may well have been distracted by selfie-taking passengers.

    ...

    The flight took place at night, one factor in the disorientation. But NTSB investigators also found a GoPro camera among the wreckage and were able to retrieve files from its memory card. Those files did not depict the fatal flight, but did show flights from the day of the accident and the previous day in which “... the pilot and various passengers were taking self-photographs with their cell phones and, during the night flight, using the camera’s flash function during the takeoff roll, initial climb, and flight in the traffic pattern.”
