Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives. And history was made. When cellphones first emerged, we were clueless how to use them. We placed them to our ears and hoped someone would talk to us. We poked them, in the hope that some bright lights would shine. And when cellphones got cameras, we had no idea that we could actually take pictures of ourselves on them. Until Paris Hilton came along, that is. With her friend Britney Spears. This, at least, is Hilton's telling of history. In a Sunday tweet, the socialite and personality claimed her role in the creation of the selfie. 11 years ago today, Me & Britney invented the selfie! — Paris Hilton (@ParisHilton) November 19, 2017 Behold, a scientific and artistic breakthrough. Behold, Hilton appearing not to have yet perfected the art of posing into a phone. Some might find it hard to believe that the cellphone and photography industries haven't celebrated her ingenuity and garlanded her with awards. If she is the Marconi of the selfie, let's place her on a plinth. Sadly, Twitterati reacted by drifting toward the pedantic and even the mean.  Sorry. Pre Thelma & Louise — Mulled Wine Mincer
