I first embarked on making my film, "We Live in Public," a little over 10 years ago. It was another era in 1999: a time when modems made '80s synth screeches, many thought the internet was a passing fad and many major companies didn't even have the most basic of websites.

Certainly the voyeur's paradise that Josh created in boom-era, late-'90s NYC made for some colorful footage, but it took many years before I realized the greater significance of Josh's work.
I didn't know if he was a buffoon or a visionary, an artist or a businessman trying to buy his way...
