will forget your name, and feel very badly about it

Thank you @hugohouse

I had a blast tonight.

If you’ve found yourself here late in the night of Nov. 20th or early morning Nov. 21st, it’s likely because you found yourself involved in my little after-hours texting thing.

Thanks again for playing along.

For fun – I’ll try to post a few stats here on after-hour participation, if I have them.

  1. Sounds like it was a success! Congrats! What did you do with texting?

  2. 100 crazy intimate strangers colluding in darkness via tiny keys & glowing screens surrounding elevated stage with demonic ben inviting word or phrase submissions via txting that flood into mac to be displayed via projector on back wall to prove our own humanity versus machine identity

  3. Awesome. The Whitney Museum should be notified about this.

  4. Cute photo! My Book club just finished Couch for this month and I was wondering if there are any discussion questions for the book. Do you know of any that are published or can you think of any? Thanks!

  5. Hi Margaret – Small Beer Press did put out a reader’s guide of sorts. It can be downloaded from Scribd here:
    Reader’s Guide for Couch.
    Drop me a line if you have any questions – cheers,
