Our pals Scott and Lori and moving to NYC, this is great news – Laughing Squid has cataloged San Francisco and “Web 2.0” culture through amazing images for as long as we can remember. We are looking forward to where the lens takes Scott in 2010 and the photos of the flourishing “maker” culture here in NYC! Adafruit’s previous hosting company was Laughing Squid too!
In 2010 Laughing Squid will be expanding to the East Coast. My wife Lori Dorn and I have decided to live in New York City for a while, to take on new challenges and adventures. Lori is originally from NYC and I’ve always thought about living there at some point. Of course San Francisco still remain a big part of Laughing Squid and I plan on traveling back fairly often.
