A Brief Blog Profile: Laughing Squid
by Thomas Hynes
If you've been saying to yourself lately, I love the internet and all, but I wish there was a site where I could find posts on art, technology and such culinary breakthroughs as Fruit Loop and Lucky Charms ice cream, then look no further.There's also this post on the crazy awesome light display planned for the San Francisco Bay Bridge. Or maybe you want to learn how to speak Minnesotan. Laughing Squid has got you covered.
Launched in 1995 by "head tentacle" Scott Beale and based out of San Francisco, Laughing Squid covers the world of art, culture and technology and yes, advancements in the cereal/ice cream vertical, and yes, there's even a post today about a floating swimming pool that's been proposed for the East River. And speaking of New York, they've got also got this post about a program aimed at donating leftover Metrocard funds to charity. That's awesome. Honestly, with every scroll and each refresh this blog gets cooler and cooler. I could talk (or blog) about them all day.
But Laughing Squid is more than fun links. It's a community of interested and engaged bloggers cultivating the web's best, neatly packaged in one place. And like any community, they're focused on making connections. There's also a great events calendar, providing readers with upcoming happenings in a number of cities. Really, Laughing Squid is the singular base for many different operations, reaching out to deliver the web's best.
