“If you’re really self-satisfied all the time, you’re probably a lousy writer.”

Storyboard’s wonderful interview with the New Yorker’s editor in chief David Remnick on the art of the modern profile.

This is, in my opinion, the best thing Storyboard has produced since it was created. The article that accompanies the video is lovely, too. Getting inside the head of someone who gets inside heads (in order to write profiles) is a nice treat.
