Insert Fifteen Minute Joke Here

For reasons entirely unknown by me, Interview Magazine included me in its “New Pop A-List: 50 to Watch (Age 30 or Under).” The feature isn’t online, but I’ve scanned the page I’m on and put up a close-up of the blurb on me. Do note that I teach at New York Law School, not at NYU; people make that mistake all the time. At least they spelled my name right, and the description of what I do is, for a magazine of celebrities interviewing celebrities, basically accurate. As for being “the next guru of Internet law,” I sure wish I had their confidence in my prospects.

The thing that blows my mind is the company I’m in. The other folks in the “Web/Tech” category are the YouTube guys, the founder of Gawker, and DVD Jon. To paraphrase Wayne and Garth, “I’m not worthy!” The list as a whole includes Andy Samberg, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Arcade Fire, America Ferrera, and a lot of folks who are clearly too hip for me to have had any chance of having heard of them.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled non-celebrity blogging.

That’s freakin’ awesome. Congratulations!

I’ve always had the sense (maybe from watching Entourage) that most people have publicists who get them placement in such lists. I suppose the explanation here must be merit alone — or a secret crush at Interview Magazine?

Also, great picture.

Crazy delicious!

Hooray! It feels so right! And that’s a good picture of you.

Guru-vy! (Apologies to Aislinn for the exclamation point).

Wow, this is seriously cool. Please tell me that this will go on your NYLS bio page.

And I agree— it’s a great pic.
