Whenever I look to in the MOVABLE TYPE activity log I end up seeing search terms-and it seems that someone is always looking for a picture of me (not the same person, I check the IP addresses). Look to the left now, my baby and non-baby picture linked up there. I'll replace the non-baby one in the spring when the sun is back and my past-brown pallor is warmed up by some rays.

Update: Someone, I think a Canadian, is did another search for my picture. Is this some joke? I know Canadians have good senses of humor....

There goes any vestige of anonymity that you may have once enjoyed. (although those pictures have been up long time) Didn't Ian Murray put the fear of God in ya', boy?

Razib K, whose face is the most widely known visage on the Internet, surpassing Anna Kournikova.

No doubt gnxp is a popular site, but I don't think that they will be recognizing you on the street any time soon.

PS I like molecule on your head...

Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode (sorry) where chubby, bald George Castanza brings a woman he is hoping to seduce to his parents' home while they are away, letting her think it's his own house. She notices George's baby pictures on the wall and remarks to the effect that it's kind of unusual, intriguing and sensitive that a guy would have his own baby picture hanging up in his place. George is delighted she thinks that way. I take the moral of this story to mean that a guy who presents his childhood photos for public viewing is either a) very secure with having been a little tyke at one time; or b) looked a lot better then. I am sure the former is true of Razib.
