It's a well known fact that programmers are generally unkempt, hairy and scruffy-looking fellows. Some believe this is due to the fact that, without a beard to rub, we would be unable to think. Justin Etheredge, however, suggests that we are merely emulating our computer science heroes, burly men such as Dijkstra, Stallman and Knuth. His gallery of scruffiness is well worth a click and a read.
Fear not clean-shaven programmers, you can always say that your well-groomed face is a tribute to Alan Turing.
