1. Independence is hard. Independence is lonely. And it takes a unique kind of bravery to create something and put it out in the world in this unfiltered way that is enabled through technology. Every one of you needs to remember this when you are getting pummeled out there by morons. It’s so easy to be the knee-jerk contrarian, the anonymous internet commenter that tears you down. And it’s so hard to make something new. And that’s a lot of what we’re celebrating here. We just want more people making amazing things and pushing through the noise.

  2. Project of the Day—Los Angeles has a vibrant and fascinating contemporary art scene, and for awhile now East of Borneo has nurtured a ”collective reexamination of West Coast art and its history, highlighting unexpected connections and encouraging new lines of thought.” In short, it’s a great site, and it wants to be greater. They’ve also got books and posters and all sorts of great stuff in the pipeline.
