RS: You've been doing some great things at The New York Times. What are some of the projects you've enjoyed working on the most?

DV: The thing I'm doing now, Watching, demands that I read a bunch of stuff on the Internet all day. Then I go home and I rarely have to check my email when I'm off the clock. I like that.

You're very active in the New York chapter of the Online News Association. What goes on at such meetings?

A lot of weeping. We lure people there with the promise of limitless alcohol and pizza and hearing from really smart people about developing themes in digital journalism, but instead we just individually berate everyone until they cry. We really get personal and vicious. It's only $8. 

What can people expect from your reading/performance?

Sexual energy like they've never experienced in their lives and will never experience again.
