Ye Olde Lenses of Mac33
Lenses, lenses, everywhere...
A long time ago on a computer not so far, far away...Mac33 began building lenses.
Welcome to my lensography! This is your gateway to the lenses I've built over the past 8 years. From here you can journey back to a time when tall ships ruled the seas, discover some fun entertainment or learn about historical places.
Those things and more are all here so scroll down and enjoy!
An Interview With Mac33 (Part 1)
Mac33 was kind enough to recently sit down for an interview with himself.
- Why and when did you start building lenses?
I read a CNNMoney article about Squidoo in Feb 2006 and it sounded like a simple way to start building web pages and maybe make some money online. I didn't have a blog or website then and saw Squidoo as a good way to experiment with ideas for sites I might build in the future.
- Do you have any blogs or websites?
I'm glad you asked...I just started my first blog. It's a general purpose blog, not Squidoo specific. But I expect that Squidoo will be a frequent topic.
Update: My blogging empire now includes a blog about Squidoo!
- What is your favorite lens that you've built?

An Interview With Mac33 (Part Deux)
- What is your lensbuilding philosophy?
To Squid or not to Squid, that is the question.
- Uh, no, the question was what is your lensbuilding philosophy?
Oh, right, my bad. Build good quality lenses that interest you and that readers will find helpful and/or entertaining.
- What is your favorite thing about Squidoo?
The community. There are a lot of good creative people here. I've learned a lot from reading and participating in the SquidU forums.
- What is your least favorite thing about Squidoo?
Anything that degrades the credibility of the site. This includes rating swaps, spam, groups with no entry criteria, lenses that waste their intro begging for ratings, etc.
Awards and Recognition
