Goooooood afternoon, Bafflers:

We hope you're all ready for this evening's festivities. The great David Graeber v. Peter Thiel debate about the #Future tonight in New York will be streaming online, for all you non-ticket-holders and far-afielders. You can watch here starting at 6:30 p.m. EST, and join in if you like, using #bafflerdebate on Twitter. (And in the meantime, a link to Graeber's essay that started it all is below.)

Thanks to everyone who came out to our "Feminism for What?" conference last weekend, too; we thought it was fascinating and very productive. Videos of that day's panels and talks will be posted on our website very soon.

In case you missed it, the folks at Nieman Lab profiled The Baffler as part of their excellent "little magazines" series this week. The conversation they had with David Rose of Lapham's Quarterly about this whole bizarre business we're in is also definitely worth a read, if you have a moment.

And of course if you have several more moments, please enjoy these salvos and posts below that you may have missed in the past week on The Baffler online.

With our highest regards,
The Baffler
