Purple Penguin is online
Joe has put up a first draft of what will become his professional website as his IT skills and experience develop. He has already learnt a huge amount in a relatively short period of time. You can click on various things. There is even a rudimentary game. But why he has chosen "Purple Penguin" as his online identity I have not asked. It goes with his lively sense of humour, of course. I think he should have called himself "The Phantom" -- but that would have caused copyright problems, of course.
There is a chain of frozen yoghurt shops called Purple Penguin but Joe is unlikely to be mistaken for yoghurt so that should not pose copyright problems. There is however another IT firm called Purple Penguin so he might have to become the technicolour penguin eventually.
I also read that "A Nebraska school district has instructed its teachers to stop referring to students by “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls,” and use “gender inclusive” ones such as “purple penguins” instead." Yuk!
Joe also has a ginger cat named "Mozart" but since Mozart is long dead, I foresee to copyright problems there
