Art fairs are a lot like professional proms – you make contacts, have a lot to look at, and in some cases, you make friends forever. I think that for artists, they can be a bit controversial: they stimulate curiosity, but at the same time, you’re always trying to not have your work hung on a wall.
Maurizio Cattelan

Mark Schlereth
There’s a strong distinction to be made between dry code smart contacts and wet code’s physical law. So law is based on our minds, our wetware – it’s based on analogy.

Carrie Ann Inaba

Most novels put out by small or corporate presses don’t really sell that well – usually a thousand copies or so.
