The strangest thing that has happened to me in a long time …
At Emetrics I unfortunately had to miss Jim Sterne’s keynote speech. When I got to the conference people had these little cameras and they kept walking up behind me and taking pictures. Well, this made me feel a little self-conscious so I asked … apparently Jim Sterne had told people to take pictures of my pony-tail.
I suspect this was in reference to all that Fred McMurry baloney from earlier this year when a Visual Sciences competitor posted under a lame pseudonym spreading obvious lies about my person and offering $325 to anyone who would cut off my hair … while I liked the biblical allusion to Sampson I’m always wary when someone threatens me with physical harm.
Call me crazy.
Regardless, there are some funny pictures of the back of my head showing up on the Internet. Since I’m pretty close to taking “Fred” up on his offer for the money and cutting my hair do donate to Locks of Love, I suppose these shots will help me tell the inevitable “back when I had hair” stories that my kids will have to hear as I age.
If you are reading this and took some pictures at Emetrics (not just of my hair), push them to Flickr and tell me where they are in the comments to this post and I’ll blog about them later.
