  1. For as nervous as you felt, the interview came off extremely well. Clayton sound like one hell of a neat guy. I was pleasantly surpised, often people who are talented in the arts aren’t that skilled at expressing themselves verbally or in writing. Clayton seems very adept in all of these communication tools. Great interview.

    Just when I didn’t think you could do any better then you always do I end up sitting in a parking lot after eating my lunch listening to this interview. I honestly had to stop and listen the whole way through so as to not miss a word.

    I checked out this project when you first mentioned it, but have not been following it as closely as I need to.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention and for such a powerful interview.

    Thanks BB and CC,

    I’m glad you think it came off well. A lot of interviewing has to do with selecting the people to talk to, and Clayton is smart and well spoken. This was important to me as his work is very meaningful, and I just wanted to do right by him.

    Thanks so much for the interview with Clayton Cubitt. I’m a former New Orleanian, and have been following Operation Eden since a few days after Katrina.

    One thing (of many) that jumped out at me: your comment on the post, “THe Surreal Life: East of Eden”. It is, as you noted, some of the most moving writing I’ve ever read.

    “This is the picture that shows the moment when two American families came together. It shows the hum of the internet made tangible. The ether made solid. Touchable.” Indeed.
