This image is a few years old now but found it today when looking back to my trip to NY City a few years ago. Not a perfect shot for focus as I was trying to quickly take the shot without him knowing. I get a kick out of the old guy sitting at the Apple bench playing with the laptop and the big beard.

Oh man that is an idea that should be done!

Great pic. I see that being me if I live that long. That beard is fairly epic.

That's Steve in disguise. He often does that to monitor AS employees.

Agreed.

I like how the hair on his templates grows down and merges with his beard. He could have a killer Saint Nicholas look for the holidays. (The more traditional, tall, thin, European-style Saint Nick as opposed to the fat, jolly, Coca-Cola-produce Santa Claus of the US.)
One should never stop striving for clarity of thought and precision of expression.
I would prefer my humanity sullied with the tarnish of science rather than the gloss of religion.

Dude's probably a 25 year old Williamsburg hipster who's done some hard living.

His fixed-gear bicycle is waiting for him outside.
