I forgot the name of the artist; that was done in the early 80s for a book on microcomputer innovators. It looks cool because it looks like they did a piece on me in WSJ.
Somebody gave it a haircut and cropped it in the late 90s where it lost something. That is what is at the website.
I don't look like that anymore and I have been discussing changes with the web design person. I look like Santa in the last few months of the year, but perhaps at other times I scare small children, so we have to find a picture safe for Internet. Perhaps, I should warn people when it changes.
Right now, I'm making changes by hand and getting the website simplified and valid. Sometime later a new look might come. Right now the only new look is graph paper instead of wood grain. And soon, a new picture. The website was originally created in the 90s with modems in mind, so the speed of page changes might be startling.
