The picture above is one of the most famous images of a computer nerd. In many ways it sums up everything about the cliche. So what happened to the guy in the picture? It seems Reddit has the answer:
Hey, not bad. While the dude is still in the same wood paneled basement he’s cleaned up his personal style and he’s got a smile on his face, which really makes all the difference. I wonder who will be the first to hunt him down and get an interview. I want to know what it’s like being the face of doomed, horrible nerddom.
The before and after picture, by the way, has been floating around about a year now. I only saw it today, but if you know who this guy is and where we can find his story, link it in the comments.
