Right Said Muirhead

3:00 PM -- We've established that telecom executives are a bright and resourceful bunch, even a tad youth obsessed, but what we didn't know is that some are damn near becoming international sex symbols -- or at least "Men Who Can" as noted in a recent Light Reading news story:

Charlie Muirhead… was named recently by the British edition of GQ magazine as a "Lead Role Model" for young, up-and-coming gentlemen with massive aspirations and almost zero hope of making it. Muirhead was listed as one of six "Men Who Can," and described as an "Indecently youthful IT phenomenon with a serious startup habit."

Bizarrely, the other five are: Winston Churchill (politics, like, 60 years ago); Steve Jobs (tech/media); Bobby Moore (sport, captain of the England soccer World Cup winning team in 1966); Tom Ford (fashion, Gucci's creative director); and Clive Woodward (rugby coach).

Well, congratulations Mr. Muirhead, on being a lead role model. As for GQ, it's a shame you neglected to list Right Said Fred. Talk about role models… until those blokes came along everyone was just barely sexy enough for their shirts, Milan, New York, the cat walks, etc.
