Gawker called the island a few weeks ago. True story. (Article here.) We weren’t too familiar with the subject matter of the journalist’s article–Reddit Island–but talked with him a bit about conservation needing a new model and our experience working on a remote island. Many thanks to Adrian Chen for touching base and keeping the tone of his writing civil.

Blogs are always a crapshoot, after all. For example: Bike Snob. We disagree with his thesis, of course, though do appreciate his critical thinking. At least in theory. It was nice of you to give the island premise a bit of thought, Wildcat Rock Machine, even if we must agree to disagree in the end. We heard you subdivide anyway, so whatever.
