Yeah me too Jon. If I may ask, what was your reaction when I threw tickets
at that panel? I remember the speaker ignored it, said "to be glad we live
in a country" and gave me a dirty look, then I got the hell outta dodge.
My only actual dispute with your stated opinions is that once you said at
AEN/Walker that "people love Michael Jordan, he's a winner," or something to
that effect. And the topic was competition among artists! Remember this is
pre-911 when Brad Brace was so upset about creaky curation. So individual
competition for stardom I think is not good vis-a-vis netart revenue, guild
being a better way to go, but aren't guilds socialist?
We've come a long way, baby,
PS--What is your take on the Eyestorm demise? Professionally?
