Apologies to all of you who’ve had trouble accessing the site over the past couple of weeks—it’s been a bumpier transition post-redesign than might have been ideal, but I’m learning that comes with the territory. I vastly appreciate all of you hanging in there while we straighten things out. Also, many of you wrote to let me know that you didn’t like Disquis, which was the new commenting system we installed with the redesign. So we’ve switched to another system which I hope you will like better and will find easier to use. Please share your thoughts regarding these issues (or whatever else you’re in the mood to discuss) in the comments. Meanwhile, here’s a picture of me on Sunday, right before I biked 100 blocks to the Museum of the City of New York to see the excellent exhibition of photographs by Stanley Kubrick.
