What is a Gravatar?

Gravatar is a service that provides a “globally recognized avatar” that follows you from site to site, identifying your comments and posts across the web. The free service currently works with WordPress, SezWho, and many other services. Chris Pirillo explains more in this video “Is Your Avatar a Gravatar?.”
