short but event­ful life as a youth cul­ture plat­form with for­mer ed­i­tors in chief Cai Diegor in an on­line in­ter­view. Here are ex­cerpts from the round­table:

LEX: Scout?

CAI: Scout hap­pen. The man­ag­ing ed­i­tor and art di­rec­tor Taken to­gether, these all felt like signs that peo­ple! We had only ad­ver­tised the party on In­sta­gram and maybe in a small ad in the
