Marisa Bowe and Ken Kurson


Good morning, Ken.


As you know, I am a "dot-com" person. Have been for a long, long time. In fact, New York magazine not long ago labeled me an "ETB," or Early True Believer. This resonated with me so strongly that I ran right out and got a tattoo--not telling where, LOL!--that says!

Now that the whole genome thing has broken open, though, the whole dot-com thing is over, over, over. Time for the carpetbaggers to bug off and for us keepin'-it-real old schoolers to get back to fundamentals. So out of deference for the Old Ways of the Net, I ask you now in the timeless fashion of chat-room flirts everywhere

What are you wearing?
