In our ever-expanding effort to stretch our tentacles across the globe, we have now wiggled our way onto Apple’s iTunes and we’ve been discovered and named a “featured artist” over at Fiddeye.com. What the deuce is a Fiddeye you ask? Well, I had no idea either, so I asked the salty buccaneer, and executive editor, who invented and runs the site.
“Fyddeye is a made-up marketing word. It’s derived from the word “fid,” which is a sail-making tool, and “eye,” as in watching maritime history unfold,” says Joe Follansbee, who founded the site in 2009. ”I try to focus on what’s happening now in maritime history, because history to me is a thing that lives in the present. It’s not really about the past.”
Works for me. Go have a look at his site. It’s definitely worth casting a squiddy eye on for a spell. It’s an online community dedicated to efforts to save and interpret important bits of maritime history — like ships, lighthouses and artifacts related to life on the water.
