Update that blog pic!

I do like to see bloggers post a pic of themselves on their blog. Just in case I run into one of 'em at a trade show.  However, I've always been bugged at personal portrait pictures on blogs, articles, etc that are waaayy out-of-date. I swear that PR folks never updated the Scott McNealy pic during his tenure as CEO. To each his own, I suppose.

The pic I had on my blog was about 6 years old, which made me a target of my own criticism. I kinda liked that pic, though. Fresh hair cut. 165lbs. 36 yrs young.  No signs of bald spot.

Today I decided to update the pic. What a difference 6 years makes!  42 years old. Less hair to cut (barring nose/ears). 20lbs heavier. A newly forming bald spot is racing my receding hairline to the top of my head (my money's on the bald spot). I'd swear my nose is 2mm (.005%) longer. I could go on. And on. And on.  However, it's me. Uncut and raw. The real deal. Dagnabit, I'm diggin' it.

I've been thinking about updating the pic for a while, when I finally saw one that made the grade.  A bit too "visionary-looking" for my taste, but the alternatives weren't as promising - such as me in Las Vegas with a ... (never mind) or at the beach without a shirt (Vegas pic is way better).

Stay tuned for 2015.

Yes, a bit too 'visionary looking'.... though, that could be more accurately stated as 'wannabe-visionary looking' :)
