One of the things I like best about posting in this blog is getting to see what people look like. Justin Etheredge gives a sweet, respectful poke at programmers who seem to have their own secret dress code. I doubt any of them would have ended up on my daughter’s list of the Ten Sexiest Men in IT, but then again — competence is sexy any way you look at it.
