In 1995 I became a Geocities homesteader. Pigs had been on my mind already for many years. And, because “pig” was probably the first word I typed into the first search engine I ever used, I knew pigs were under represented on the web. I was inspired to do something about that. My mission was clear and the concept of “Porkopolis” was born.

There are still some banks with an untarnished reputation as the first quarter of 2009 rolls out. Don’t trust those bonus-focused big bankers, trust your pig!
