  2:  a  person  who  poses  for  a  photographer  or  painter  or

  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
  poser  n.  A  {wannabee};  not  hacker  slang,  but  used  among 
  crackers,  phreaks  and  {warez  d00dz}.  Not  as  negative  as  {lamer} 
  or  {leech}.  Probably  derives  from  a  similar  usage  among  punk-rockers 
  and  metalheads  putting  down  those  who  "talk  the  talk  but  don't  walk 
  the  walk".
