    It's been my avatar so long that I don't really even remember when I started using it or where I found the image. But I remember when I started using it I decided, “This is going to be my official avatar and I’m going to use it everywhere.” Partly that's because that old Adam West show has a special place in my heart—it's one of the first shows I remember watching as a kid—I wrote a little about this in this blog post. Also, I really liked that old David Byrne quote: “People will remember you better if you always wear the same outfit.” Over the years I've started to introduce actual pictures of my real face in various contexts where I think the Adam West avatar is a little inappropriate, but I'll hang on to it as long as I can.
