Although there are a few Geeklists regarding the meaning behind your Avatar, I don't think I've seen one where folk actually show off the full-sized image, which their avatar was cropped or derived from.

So here it is. Let's see the full-size image.

Nothing special here, just me distorted by my Mac's built-in camera. I always find it difficult to chose a single picture/alias/avatar/whatever to represent me. So I went for this ridiculous shot. I might still change the avatar somewhen in the futre - possibly at the time I'll be able to purchase a geek badge. Until then I kind of like the fact that my avatar is (almost) me. Why almost? Freely available face recognition software still has not been able to link the picture to my real me cool

It's simple, it's me, and with my daughter's hand on my shoulder, which I thought was neat. And when I found that board game, I had to post.



Bryan wants my avatar to be this one instead, but it's old, and I actually have hair.

My Nickname is based on the Movie above (and dates from the time the Movie was in Cinemas...)
Someday browsing the web I found this friendly fellow:

The creator kindly allowed me to use it as Avatar.
As Andy writes here his Idea was obviously the same originally.

Yes, I think my avatar is even more impressive "full-sized"

 


To forestall the question: I have no idea who anyone is.
I'm fairly sure that the video is taken from a camera mounted on a concrete wall or mounted on a pole away from the actual crash site.
It's hard to say conclusively, but my guess is that someone probably got hurt (watch for the small orange bit of metal to fly up after the crash).

I received this as an email attachment entitled "World's calmest cameraman". Boy, they got that right!

Mine is just a still from The Matrix. The movie is full of great imagery and symbolism -- this pic of Neo being pulled up into the belly of the Nebuchadnezzar, into the light, has always appealed to me.



Sorry, couldn't find a much bigger version online.

I rotate through avatars from time to time, but the current and by far best I've used is this beautiful hand drawing created by the amazing Tony Baker, AKA gren doogan, which he created to celebrate the birth of my daughter Charlotte.

 


When she was born I was using an image of Grimlock as my avatar (and had been for a while), which explains why she looks like a baby Dinobot and is sometimes refererred to as "Charlock".

The original hand drawing now hangs in her bedroom.

Photoshopped (and I am a very casual user of that program) the iconic heads of my two favorite games together: Civilization (heavy) and San Juan (light). Even in its original form it doesn't look too bad.

Note that I had to squeeze the picture together a bit to get them both in for the avatar picture size.
