Philipp Lenssen wrote an application for the 24-Hours Application Challenge at Friendfeed that converts a name into an avatar. Depending on how I spell my name and whether or not I include my middle initials, I come up with different avatars.
They look all very male-centric to me. Was it easier to create male faces? Is the converter geared towards the male internet community?
I guess I won’t use any in a real profile, especially the mean-loooking ones, unless I want to pose as somebody else and hide my true self. 🙂
