I just realized that this VF Emily Gould-Keith Gessen thing characterizes me as “n+1 friend John Carney.”
That’s a bit odd. I think more people would probably describe me as “a friend of Krucoff” or even an ally of the Young Manhattanite crew. After the party, I wound up drinking with the Gawker kids rather than the n+1 kids. And, come to think of it, I used to be an intern at Gawker.
I have met Keith a couple of times, and once he rejected an idea I had for n+1 because it was too intellectual or something. I guess that makes us friends.
This is where Katie would say something about brand alignment.
