Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

I used to work alongside the PostSecret guy for years!

Today at the Crafty Bastards show, I walked over to the PostSecret table and saw this guy I used to know, Frank, sitting there. I was like, "You're the PostSecret guy?!" And indeed he is. When I had just gotten out of college, I helped run my father's copying business and would have to spend a lot of time at the NIH library making photocopies of technical articles. Frank did the same sort of work at NIH, so I used to chat with him daily for several years in the late 90s.

He's doing pretty well with his genius project. He told me his PostSecret blog gets 2 million hits per month and he only launched it in November of 2004. People mail him around 70 postcards per day from all over the world with their secret confessions written on them. He said he sometimes even gets postcards in braille! And now he's got a book coming out. I gotta think of an idea like that ...

Frank, the "Post Secret guy", today:
hey cool! a face for the blog! thanks for posting this--you take some cool pics.
