My friend Matt interviewed me about The Dacha Project for Sociotree.com, an art+culture project focused on the free sharing of everything worth sharing. This was a long overdue and much-needed reason to explore my thoughts through writing, as I answered the questions we six are often asked in conversation. This interview is helping me realize what book I want to write. Thanks Sociotree!
