When Looks Improve With Age

I saw a photo of (Lotus Notes creator and now Microsoft's Chief Software Architect) Ray Ozzie recently, and was struck by how smart and distinguished he looked.

A quick search for other photos of Ozzie turned up this shocker from 1974.

Yes, I know they all looked like that in 1974, but it was still quite a jolt to see.

This reminded me of that other famous person who was known for growing more handsome and distinguished as the years went by - Gianni Agnelli of Fiat.

Here's the young Agnelli...

And the same man after a few decades had worked their magic.

I guess there are advantages to starting off ugly. Things can only go in one direction thereafter ;-).
