"With the talent we had, I knew I didn't have to worry about offense. I knew I didn't have to stress about scoring. I was able to single-mindedly focus, like I'd always yearned to, on playing defense. It let me focus on putting opponents in straitjackets and erasing them from the game."

"Many of the players in Fashionopolis are not in complete alignment. The rightshorers have an alternative aim and scale than the slow-fashion folk; high fashion will always be about seasons and making new things.

“Old power works like a currency. It is held by few. Once gained, it is jealously guarded, and the powerful have a substantial store of it to spend. It is closed, inaccessible, and leader-driven. It downloads, and it captures. New power operates differently, like a current. It is made by many. It is open, participatory, and peer-driven. It uploads, and it distributes. Like water or electricity, it’s most forceful when it surges. The goal with new power is not to hoard it but to channel it.”
