If you don't know Jeffstaple, you better ask somebody. Jeff, also known as Jeff Ng (and owner of the ultra influential Reed Space), recently launched a column with my magazine that will live in print and online. It's the second platform that's the most exciting because of the unique way Jeff insisted on producing it. Instead of doing what is fast becoming ubiquitous — the video interview — he opted to get all New York Times on us and made a talking slide show (click below) that is as sophisticated and exquisite as it is entertaining and informative. Enjoy.
In 1990, I co-founded a magazine called URB (urb.com) in Los Angeles. URB captures an intimate view of progressive urban sounds and landscapes in print and online. Beyond my day job, I also explore the world of politics, race and culture, photography and media (new and old). pure/ROKER is designed to be a living and shared notebook of the most discussion worthy aspects. Enrichment is encouraged. Debate and disagreement unavoidable. And dissent welcomed.
