So, back in 1999, while I was editor of Winmag.com, I had a professional head shot taken, as I did every few years during my 20 years as a computer journalist. I loved the picture, taken while I was busy covering a convention at the Javitts Center in NYC. I liked it so much I used it for seven years.
But I don't look like that anymore, so I was going to post my school picture from J middle school, where I teach. Vicki didn't like it, so took a series of shots, and we settled on the new one here on my column and on my home page at http://www.schindler.org.
Chalk one up for truth in column pictures.
