Things I've noticed lately. All the designers, copywriters, just about everyone in company has images of themselves for profile pics on slack, on outlook, everywhere.

Except most of us programmers, we are still default faceless profile pics. I wonder if this is par for course?

And we are only ones that block our cameras on meetings.

    Development uses the default or an Anime avi.
    Security using some random person’s face (usually from stock photo) or an Anime or Transformer avi.

    I normally use a sketch, or an octocat/etc. Something devvy and cute.

    VP of engineering (boss's boss) at work yelled at me for it, so now I have to use a photo. Jerk.

    Most of my avatar's are an alien with dreads and a joint.... I should probably change that before I start linking my profiles in my resume huh 🤔

    I bear a striking resemblance to Edward Snowden (or I did before growing out my beard). I started using a picture of him as my avatar two years ago and very few people have even noticed. Most of them assume it's just a slightly old pic of me.

    I'm reminded of someone I knew who used to install pictures from the top 10 wanted list as their work ID picture on their security pass.

    No one ever noticed..

    Which says a lot about security passes..

    @molaram Adding Vuk (the fox) to that gif wasn't nice. It was the last shard of my childhood still intact.
