Several people recently pointed out to me that my 10-year-old
photo on the department web page was embarrassingly out of date.
The search for more up-to-date examples was a shocking voyage
of self-discovery, as shown on these pages.

THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE ACADEMIC
"The juvenile sea squirt wanders through the sea searching for a
suitable rock or hunk of coral to cling to and make its home for life. For
this task it has a rudimentary nervous system. When it finds its spot and
takes root, it doesn't need its brain any more so it eats it. It's rather
like getting tenure."
-- Daniel C. Dennett, Consciousness Explained, 1991
The burned-out Associate Professor
(Thanks to the governments of Ontario and Canada for some
of the particularly candid shots.)
