In the Sunday New York Times, I read the article titled “Where the Crafts Babes and D.I.Y. Dudes Are.” This Sunday Styles article, was about the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn but the author sadly made a choice to let her snide opinions get in the way of covering the event. I was completely put off by her snotty, condescending tone. (“How many graphic designers does the world need?”) If you cared about the craft world getting a fair shake, you could not read the article without getting angry at its author. So I wondered who was Melana Ryzik, the author of this piece? Today I googled her. I found her eponymous web site (melenaryzik.com) but Google warned that “the site may harm your computer.” Her site had been hacked — hacking a hack, I guess. What goes around comes around.
