Today is the 16th anniversary of Laughing Squid. On November 16th, 1995 I created a film and video production company in San Francisco while working on my documentary about the social surrealist artist Alonso Smith. Then in 1996 I setup The Squid List, followed by the debut of our web hosting operations in 1998 and starting in 2005 I formally launched this blog on WordPress. And for those of you wondering, here’s the origin of the name “Laughing Squid”.
