  1. I saw that NYT article about the trustafarians of Williamsburg right after I got back from Renegade. Sales sucked—now I know why!

  2. Norton, thanks for the slideshow. I really love so much contemporary Iranian art and design — I don’t know if it’s because I come across so much of it that’s really good in my eyes, or if there’s some deeper reason why I connect with it. And now you’ve introduced me to even more!

    Grace, I’m so sorry that Renegade was a bust. Maybe the trustafarians will actually get jobs and be able to afford your work soon!
