A lot like me today confronting my article for the Times T Magazine, scrambling around within my web in an attempt to provide facts for the checkers in the research department. No, the metaphor is not perfect. But it is amazing that for this breezy story of 1,000 words (really an excuse for a lavish design pictorial) I can dish up 48 annotations. A far cry from book publishing, when it is hoped you know your stuff but no one has the interest/time? to challenge you.
