So why the tentacles?
It’s funny now that I think of it, but within about six months after I got my first internet account in 1995 I had web pages on servers in Singapore, the US and Finland. Over the next few years the number of sites increased to:
In my more fanciful moments I imagined I had tentacles draped all over the globe, and I chose the blue-ringed octopus as my mascot.
My empire has now shrunk to something like two sites, and I am content to keep a much lower profile than before.
Apart from the tentacleness above, this blue-ringed occy will remain an enigma for the foreseeable future.
Ol’ occy also has a Flickr page.
