This is an interesting article on the transformation of J Allard. He certainly looks different and gives hope to geeks everywhere. I think that the tone of the article was a bit harsh. I don’t see anything wrong with someone wanting to change their “look” if it makes them happy or helps their career. (Not that they should have to!)
For more high-resolution, back-lit J Allard goodness download the .tiff file from his homepage. It’ looks perfect for framing.
