Bill Gould goes round with a camera at users' meetings. 

After the event, when asked where the photos are, he 
usually says "They didn't come out very well" or 
"Chinh (*) says he couldn't do anything with them".

The truth, it can be revealed, falls into two parts. 

1. Stata Corp are a very handsome group of people  
but it seems that very few photos of them exist 
on the internet. 

2. Prominent users are on average much less 
attractive (t test, p ~ 1e-6). However, averages 
must of course not be overinterpreted whenever outliers
exist. It follows that more photos of them exist on the internet.
