I thought it was super interesting and you did a great job and now I'm really sad that you had to take it down. I'm also really sad about what John's doing in erasing himself from the Internet, so I was hoping maybe (maybe) you could try to talk him out of it? I guess that's a lot to ask of you. Sorry.
I don’t totally get what he’s doing, but I’ve had my own ideas about retreating from internet life. So maybe I do get it? I think when you decide to exist as a public persona, you give up some control of your life and that can be a drag. Next time I see John in person I want to talk to him about it, because he’s still posting weird empty stuff on his tumblr and making comments on twitter. So I don’t know where’s he’s at about it. Also I really liked the interview and wanted to do an eventual follow up. Oh well.
