There’s a story up on Wired this morning about our good friend Barrett Brown, who was recently released from prison and is currently holed up in a Dallas halfway house. You might also enjoy the above short documentary, called Relatively Free, that follows Barrett from prison to his halfway house, his mother acting as wheelman. Wheelwoman?

Anyway, if things work out as I hope they will, you’ll be seeing more of Barrett in this space before long. Consider yourself teased.

What Do David Foster Wallace and Barrett Brown Have in Common?

Barrett Brown, as you might know, won a National Magazine Award earlier this week for a jailhouse column that began right here on FrontBurner and then migrated to Glenn Greenwald's Intercept. Well, he won for three installments published by The Intercept. We're happy to have been part of the process and aren't looking for any credit (we totally deserve all the credit). And, as you might also know, I won a National Magazine Award for a profile I wrote of Barrett. Which has led me this past week to remark to several people that Barrett must be the only subject of an NMA-winning story to have won an NMA himself. Right? I mean, because how could that have happened twice? So I asked the kind folks at the American Society of Magazine Editors, which bestows the awards, to confirm that it had never happened before. Well, it has.
