It's the New Year, so it's time for a new New World Notes mixed reality profile photo for this blog's masthead. (Way way past time, actually, as the current one has been up there since, um, 2006.) What do you think of this one, combining the update to my Hamlet Au avatar created by Iris, combining a recent photo I took in China? I kinda wonder if I should grow back my Van Dyke and take a photo that'll look more like my avatar, but maybe Hamlet should be a virtual archive to my facial hair past. (Then again, maybe I should stop self-obsessing.) Feedback wanted! Just be gentle. Or brutal. Or better yet, brutally gentle.
