CppCon Hair Poll


During my talk at CppCon yesterday, I decided to liven things up by asking the audience to answer a question that comes up often: who does my hair style make me look like? People volunteer answers to this question--which, until now, I've never asked--on a surprisingly frequent basis.
I wasn't able to show the results of the poll in real time, because I didn't realize that if I got more than 100 responses, I'd have to pay to see the data. Serves me right for forgetting the fine print I'm sure I agreed to when I started with SurveyMonkey.

@Jesper Clausen: Well, they say pets resemble their owners, and "resembles" is commutative :-) (Ah for the days when I had more hair...)

None of them, the Swedish actor Johannes Brost is a closer match (except for the hair), perhaps what Scott will look like 20 years down the line:
