The Mystery of the Digital Cuttlefish

I listened to this podcast interview that Digital Cuttlefish gave to Token Skeptic and wound up knowing even less about Cuttlefish than when I began it.

    Up until that interview I didn’t even know it was supposed to be a mystery. I thought Cuttlefish was just another blogger.

  • ‘Tis Himself, OM

    I always thought Cuttlefish was a man.

    Really? I always thought Cuttlefish was an invertebrate. Eight arms, two tentacles – ten sources of awesome.

    I know what you mean, though. When I read someone’s writing, I tend to “hear” it in their voice. When I don’t know their voice, my brain makes something up. When I actually hear them talking later, there is often some cognitive dissonance.

      The idea that Cuttlefish is a human is upsetting to me. Thank goodness it’s April Fool’s.

    There’s a photo of me with Digital Cuttlefish, at their house:
    They’re the one holding the camera.
