The Horror of Recognition
By Josh Simons on Nov 26, 2007
I came across the above photo as I was browsing through old yearbook photos on my alma mater's web site several months ago.
My first reaction was, "Oh my, they look incredibly geeky."
My second reaction was, "Hey, I recognize the guy with the sideburns!"
My third reaction was, "Oh, wait. Crap--that's me sitting next to him! What a pair."
Inexplicably, my fourth reaction was "Hey, I should post this on the blog." So there you go--a glimpse into computing and attire at Harvard in the early eighties. And eyeglass styles-- let's not forget that.
