Dress codes and hair styles of programming language legends. Can you tell who is who ?

Although some of you might be more keen on taking Nangafakir’s quiz about another picture in a league of its own. If Nangafakir had a caption contest on that one, my entry would have been “What Paris, New York and Rio have lost to Islam(abad).”

Is there anyone who will watch this video for a minute or two and give thought to the idea that someone there looks like a somewhat newly wed movie star without putting me at risk of abuse and my future physical self at the risk of rotten tomatoes ?

For those of you with little bandwidth or little patience – at least this screen shot taken at 0.42 seconds ?

Amit again links to Economist report :

[Hillary Clinton’s] campaign has also begun questioning Mr Obama’s integrity, using an essay he wrote in kindergarten entitled “I Want to be President” as evidence of overweening ambition.

How about Hillary Clinton’s refusal to divorce her husband post Lewinsky as ‘evidence’ of her ‘poor moral character’ and condoning adultery while in office ? Oops, an accidental pun there !

And what now about poor Tom Hasken (that we talked about earlier), a hypothetical future president-in-running for 2048 currently growing up in a small town near Iowa and has a wordpress blog, a myspace profile, a facebook wall, a twitter account and a massive search history logged in somewhere !

2007 Nobel Literature Laureate Dorris Lessing in her acceptance speech :

How are we, our minds, going to change with the new internet, which has seduced a whole generation into its inanities so that even quite reasonable people will confess that once they are hooked, it is hard to cut free, and they may find a whole day has passed in blogging and blugging etc.

If “blogging” includes reading blogs, she is talking about you, too. 😀

Jokes apart …no, actually I will just let that pass. [ and leave with you another blogger’s take on this ]
