Rory Blyth is a dirty fish pirate

It’s true. Rory Blyth is a dirty fish pirate. If that makes sense to you, then you may be in serious trouble. But there’s an icon that adds credibility to the claim:

Rory has been blogging since several years before he was born and it seems he’s planning to get serious about it now.  It’s just possible you’ve read posts where I’ve mused about way I might make money from this blogging malarky.  Well, Rory’s been working at it for far longer than me and deserves some sort of reward if that’s what he’s after.

As an aside, going straight to his current posts will be more than a little like jumping into the deep end of a swimming pool.  Especially if you’re not a good swimmer.  And the pool for some reason features a raging waterfall with jaggedy rocks at the bottom.

Here’s a link to one of my favourites to ease you in:  a comic that explains why IT people hate marketing people.  Enjoy!

  1. I love that comic, I especially love that I read it in Joel Spolsky’s “best software writing” book after seeing it on Also good is the explanation of HDTV, that really helped me with my buying decision.

    I still don’t think he’s that much of a dirty fish pirate though.

    Also, all the CSS has gone from your site at this precise second, I wonder if it will come back after I submit my comment? (Note: For people without CSS this comment box is ridiculously narrow. Is there anything that can be done about that?)

  2. I think that comic is the perfect introduction to Rory, I first found it via Joel’s site. And he’s the one claiming to be a fish pirate, I simply chose to believe him.
