My New Favorite Photo



My New Favorite Photo, originally uploaded by JoshB.

I was talking with some folks at the Oregonian newspaper yesterday (more about that soon!), and Freddy Joe, one of their photographers, was messing around with my Canon SD700 camera, and took this really cool shot of me and my card.

This is going to be my new “logo” image, replacing the venerable “sky profile” shot that I’ve been using.

Thanks, Freddy! :-)

    Definitly a sexy title…but isn’t it a little misleading for a ‘systems programmer’ working in Intel IT to be passing themselves off as an official “evangelist”? People outside the company might actually think that this is your job.

  2. TacoBoy, “systems programmer” doesn’t describe what my responsibilities are any more accurately. it’s just the pigeonhole the HR computers put me in. BTW, looking up my job title according to HR and posting it could be considered divulging Intel Confidential information. :-) Be careful.

    I only ever give out cards when I’m at conferences, etc., when I’m in evangelism mode. So I don’t think it’s misleading.

    Besides, what’s in a job title? 😉

    No, Intel can’t post it, individuals can, and yes I know this for a fact, and you opened the door when your posted your “business card”. Was this business card done at Intel’s expense? One would hope not. Not exactly an accurate representation of your job and responsibilities at Intel. JMHO.

  4. I love how all of these people that I\’ve never met (I\’m presuming, since you\’re all anonymous) are telling me how my business card is or isn\’t accurate, and what my job responsibilities are and aren\’t.

    These cards were approved by my manager, and Intel paid a whole $25 for them. I would have happily paid out of my own pocket if it were possible, and I knew so many people were going to get worked up about it. I got them made so I could stop handing out cards that I had made on my own at conferences where I was representing Intel.

    You\’re all entitled to your opinion, of course, but come on, guys – lighten up! :-)

  5. Aaron, I’m not sure. I had a photo session with Fred this morning at the O’s studio, and we did some pretty cool shots of me and my gadgets. Can’t wait to see how those come out.

    You can bet that I’ll be linking the story like crazy once it comes out. No one that comes anywhere near this site is going to miss it. :-)
