Sorry fellas, had to take her off for a BIG meeting with Barry Diller yesterday. Wasn't easy, but of course nothing in life is. I will miss it and you all. Thanks for a great 83 days and stay classy, beards.

Bring on the shame.

"a BIG meeting with Barry Diller", is that some sort of euphemism?

I saw Barry talk at Shop.org in Vegas a few years back. Brilliant man. I understand the shaving.

I will say though, I grew the same beard last year, in anticipation of having a big moustache in May, and ended up having two big meetings with important people. I then had a big silly moustache and had another big meeting with a potential client. In all cases I considered throwing in the towel and shaving, and yet in EVERY case, not only was the beard/stache not a problem, it became the topic of conversation, and a memorable item that left an impression on the client. So, I'm not saying you blew it, just saying you should not go through life thinking you always have to play by the rules. Sometimes the opposite pays off!

I had a huge meeting with a half moustache once. It was the meeting's "hot start" and everything went amazingly well. I hope you found a different hot start now that your fabulous beard is no more.

Diller was a douche when I met him. Of course I was working for an IAC company at the time.

Hope your meeting goes better.
