Its funny how a simple picture in the middle of a marathon race can change a life. You might’ve heard of him, now tabbed as the ‘Ridiculously Photogenic Guy’ Zeddie W. Little, was just another runner in a marathon race who is now an internet celebrity.

A bystander who took the picture later uploaded it on Reddit and then it went viral, from facebook fan pages to tumblrs dedicated to this man. Sometimes its funny how much technology can change someone’s life. Just a simple snap of a picture landed Little with ABC on Good Morning America for a national news interview. What’s to say that his career won’t take off in the modeling industry since this picture?

Already an internet celebrity, Little is using his fame for a good cause by participating in another marathon in NYC and donating the proceeds to the John Ritter foundation for Aortic Health. It is nice to see that someone is using their fame for good in our society. But, I wanted to ask you guys, what do you think about this? I find it really interesting that technology can have such a profound impact on someone’s life. Do you think that it is good that technology can influence someone’s life so much? This can also relate a bit to the Tyler Clementi’s case because, one could argue that it was technology that led Tyler to his actions. If there was no technology would this have happened? These are interesting things to consider, what do you guys think?
