Starving artists
Matt Haughey

I didn’t attempt to register for xoxo this year because I am just recovering from attending last year. I was one of those ‘mental health’ types that I bet the Andys were looking out for more so this year. My experience congregating with ‘1000 introverts’ was, and still is, cathartic for me. I’ve been reeling since last year. These sound like superlatives, because I’m attempting to compose this on my phone, it was terrific to encounter you, Zoe and so many more of us out there. The tether of the Slack Channel has even a lifeline where I cut off all other online chatter.

Still, there is some tangible magic conjured by two guys named Andy and magic can keep conjuring I’m out of words. Unironically, words-this is not my medium.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
