What happened to the young, dynamic Joel?

I remembered when I first started visiting this forum, that there was a picture of a dynamic, young Joel on the home page.  What happened to that picture?

I don't remember that picture. It is the one that's still up at http://joel.spolsky.com ? That one is from 1995.

I think the young dynamic Joel is being held in an attic while the old grumpy lethargic Joel runs wild.

Do you still bike?  What are you riding these days?

Yeah, that's the pic.  I thought it used to be on the joelonsoftware.com homepage, but I must have been confused as to which web site it was originally on.

I remember seeing that picture when joelonsoftware was hosted at "editthispage.com".

As a keen/obssessed cyclist I am also interested to know if you are still riding your bike.

As another keen cyclist, I too am curious about this, and have occasionally wondered if I'd ever run into Joel at an organized ride put on by one of the NYC cycle organizations (5BBC, NYCC, TransAlt, Time's Up, etc).

Howsabout a 'JoS Ride' sometime this spring?  Or (slightly easier) we could just get a 'JoS contingent' together at one of the abovementioned organizations' rides.  (Not Bike NY, though - that's way too much of a zoo).

Esteemed Mr. Spolsky?  Whaddaya say, sir?

Sounds like the current Joel uses the four-wheeled variety...

I have the nagging feeling that that's somehow inappropriate in some way in some part of the globe. Deepest regrets.
