Who wrote this crap?

An attendee at QED, Al Johnston, posted a pic of me doing my talk on my Facebook page today. It’s quite amusing and characteristic, so with his permission I made it my profile pic. (Note that it’s copyright, so don’t copy it anywhere without asking him – not that you’d want to, but you know.)

Anyway – that’s very me.

    If you have ever considered running a captioning contest this photo has to be the inspiration.

    As much as a picture can capture the essence of a person….

    Yup. That’s you all right.

    I like it. And it is a little humorous being one of those shots that captures a fleeting facial expression that we normally wouldn’t notice.

    Yes. Seriously awesome photo. They don’t emerge readily — for anyone — and often only when assisted by lots of fancy lighting, props and so forth. One to be treasured.

    Must have swallowed it.”

    “It can’t be Col. Mustard, so it has to be Miss Scarlet in the kitchen with the lead pipe.”

    OK–which of you wise guys replaced my talk with several pages full of Alain de Botton’s tweets?

    I recognise that expression. I think we’ve all worn that expression sometime.

    I find that photo utterly adorable. Love your specs!
