The Captain's Beard-off
According to CNN Money, there are a number of Silicon Valley mogals artfully engaged in a beard-off. Beards are back bigtime dude. Included in the ranks of the execs taking on the pirate look are Oracle's Larry Ellison, Pixar's Ed Catmull, Flickr's Stewart Butterfield and Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales.
And, of course, who could overlook the exec with the biggest lead in voting for the best beard Steve Jobs. Vote for yourself here but the judges will say otherwise... Michael Copeland, a editor at Fortune, credits Jobs with doing more than any other executive to forward facial hair among his peers among other innovations.
Fake Steve Jobs credits his masterful beard with Arafat-like salt and pepper perfection to Annalisa his colorist.
