Adventures in Ethics and Science

Getting with the times

i-0a4419da46fbacbc46e7ed2ec8fbcf0e-OldProPic.jpgI’ve retired my old profile picture, but I thought I’d give you a peek at the larger photo from which it was taken. That’s me in biology class, my senior year of high school, doing stuff with slides and an alcohol burner and microorganisms. Some dedicated yearbook photographer took the picture (though it wasn’t one of the candids that made it into the yearbook).

But high school was a long time ago …

Mad props to Joe Claus, the photographer who took the new profile picture. (Indeed, Joe’s skillz are such that the new shot might be about as fair a representation of everyday-me as the old yearbook reject. Someday, dear readers, we will discuss the artifice involved in visual representations — all of them, not just the ones doctored to fool the journals.)

    And I thought the previous one was of you slaving over a keyboard!

    Do WE get one of the new version (suitable for framing)? I’m less likely to reach up to brush your hair out of your face on this one.

    The 2 posts on changing career paths have informed us greatly, from the other end of the spectrum (not wondering if I should do it, but wondering why our daughter did it). Whatever makes you happy…and thanks.

    I like the new photo–very nice! What do philosophers slave over?

    [Keyboards, books, stack o’ student papers — the usual stuff. Also, metaphysical issues.]

    Hah, I admit I saw the category and thought it might be more commentary about Belle’s housekeeping post…;)
