Jimmy, this year you’ve chosen to left align your traditional banner ad portrait asking for Wikimedia Foundation donations, which means that your mug ends up being the accompanying image for whatever I end up looking up on Wikipedia.
And thus hilarity ensues.
My — granted unsolicited — advice is that next year you take some of the donation money, especially the 20 bucks I’m about to throw at you out of guilt for writing this post, and hire a professional graphic designer so you’re not creeping people out or (worse) making them laugh unintentionally.
I guess this is why they started using other staff photos as well.
For a more serious look at Wikipedia’s fundraising efforts, they are tracking their progress here: Fundraising 2011.
