Default Who am I, who are you?

I'm sure this may have been done already but I can't see a thread.

I've been on here for a little while and got into discussions with folks and I sometimes wonder what these guys look like. Some have pics of themselves as their avatar but I thought a thread giving first names and a pic might be interesting.

If your ugly or shy or just like your anonymity then fair enough but for the rest of us here's that opportunity.

OP, given the threads' title and your opening comments, please tell how that image represents what you look like? It is as anonymous as your thread name.

Strangely, I never wonder what people look like. That reduces the risk of making judgements based on appearance (we all have prejudices, especially those who think they haven't). Instead, I simply go on what they say.

Something which has always puzzled me is why IEEE journals include pictures and brief CVs of authors. Am I supposed to take an article more seriously because of the long list of committees the (apparent) main author has sat on? The article may actually have been written by a postgrad or postdoc anyway.

We have faces?

I thought we were ALL just "virtual" entities, existing only as figments among the electrons...and protons...and whatever-trons.

Reminds me of the on-air radio guy who made a live appearance and one of the fans commented, "You look a lot different in person than you do on the radio.". (For several decades radio people have been saying, "Radio is just like television . . . except the pictures are better.". Similar to my reaction a few months ago after I watched a silent movie - the German film "Metropolis" - in its entirety for the very first time and commented, "Silent films are just like talking movies - except the dialog is better.".)

I am way too ugly to let anyone photograph me. I tried to grow my ponytail out for my 40th class reunion but came up a little short.

Assume that everyone here looks like a seedy middle-aged male and you won't go very far wrong. I've met dozens of diy members over the years and Pareto's law applies with a vengeance.

Yes, my avatar is a photo of me.
