edit from nadja: Oy! This is what happens when you share a website - and a log-in to edit said website - with your mother.
I just wanted to say: I’m sorry we’ve been remiss in keeping you updated on the future of the site. As many of you guessed, the amount of time and work it took eventually overwhelmed us. Running this site was so inspiring and exciting. We’re very grateful to the talented community that sprung up around this project. I hope you’ll all stay in touch with us and with each other - here in the comments and at the firstname.lastname@example.org email. And stay posted for more info from Francoise about the New Yorker’s official Eustace Tilley cover contest!
