    Hi Tonmo,

    For those of you near Moss Landing/Monterey/Santa Cruz and who may be interested, I'm planning to give a talk at MBARI next Wed. The talk will be about our marine conservation work here in Indonesia, so alas not about cephalopods. In fact I hardly ever see octopuses at our sites- clearly the many many fish find them first!

    take care,
    Crissy

    There are not many times I regret not being on the West Coast, but that would be one of them. I wish I could be there, that description sounds really cool... good luck for the talk!

    I don't guess there is a chance they will record and post it?

    That sounds like a really interesting talk, Crissy. I guess most of us will have to pass on it because of location. After the talk, are there a few photos you could possibly post?
    I've also wondered what your life is like in Indonesia. The work you're doing seems so worthwhile.

    Thanks for sharing, Chrissy! I tweeted it @cephs (and flagged it as non-ceph :smile:)... Wish I could be there!

    Ugh, I am so tired of misspelling your name - and you can't edit a tweet. Crissy, Crissy, Crissy. I do humbly apologize!

    Ok - I deleted and retweeted - that'll make it right!

    What's mucktopus without an octopus?

    Crissy,

    You might mention this guy in your talk.

    Fortunately, I can here and have often removed the erroneous 'h' and add a 'c' to mucktopus and I usually stick to Roy if I am too lazy to go hunt up a cut and paste for Neogondodactylus :wink:

    I don't even notice the bonus "H" these days- it's happened all my life.

    True enough Roy, and don't worry, I will definitely show a couple of octo pics!
