Evidently Bruce Schneier likes Squids, he does a weekly blog post that is squid related asking that commenters mention or discuss other news he may be interested in. In the past he has covered squid t-shirts, drawings, and this week squid utensils labeled the ‘sea-life dining set’ by Perry Gargano.
