Some thoughts on the use of bio photos

I have noticed over the years that whenever someone puts together a bio page for me in relation to a talk or a conference presentation that they tend to grab just any old photo from the Internet. Quite frankly, some of these photographs a more flattering than others. Most of them are not as good as the selfy I took on my iPhone this morning.  Photos from 10 years ago might be considered too flattering in terms of hairline.

Perhaps with some strategic tagging and linking I can get this to the top of the Google search engine.

I also have a full bio page at which contains all sorts of useful information.
