As I watched Allison Randal's tagmemics introduction as a Quicktime movie, I thought I saw a picture of myself in her talk. Granted, I was watching a shaky video of a projected image like the videos of the current releases commonly available on the streets of Manhattan. I looked at that part of the video a few times, but couldn't really make it out. The person in the picture looks like me, at least at first glance.
I emailed her to ask just how vain I was, and she sent me the original picture, which is really Ken Pike. However, out-of-focus and reduced 10 times, he really looks like me, or I look like him. Who does the other person look like under the same conditions and would be a likely person for me to talking to? I know who I thought he could be.
It turns out that I am not only vain, but fairly dim. I could have simply looked at the slides and not bothered her at all.
