Longtime TONMO.com friend Olaf Blaauw (ob) has agreed to join TONMO.com's volunteer staff, in the capacity of "International Liaison". Now that is a title! 8-)

I had the pleasure of meeting ob in person recently and it is a great honor to have him affiliated with TONMO.com as a staff member. His interest in cephalopods runs as deep as anyone I've met, and no one has assembled more in-person meetings with other TONMO.com members as Olaf has. If you ever have the opportunity to connect with him when he passes through in his travels, be sure to take advantage of it.

Welcome to your new post, ob!

A whole new meaning to "going Dutch" and a great title for the news media when the next colossal squid needs thawing! Glad you accepted the role!

Hopefully before the year is through, actually.

I was wondering, being that your now a high profile international diplomat, has the secret service given you a code name yet?:smile::smile::smile:

Perhaps Pino is available? Renegade would have been cool but some other less important guy took it..
