Ian Schwartz Interview

Saw this interview with Ian Schwartz (BMXer and ex-messenger from Columbus Ohio) recently, and I think a lot of what he has to say is relevant to the whole us vs. them thing that seems to start happening around anything that is different and fun. Here's the most interesting quote from it...
SFBG: This is another fortune-telling thing. Do you think there’s going to be a rosy future when bikes and skaters will just accept each other and get along?

IAN: Um, well, I couldn’t even say. If I had to take a guess, I would guess no, probably not. Just because the way everything is in life--that’s just human nature. People tend not to like things that they’re not doing.
Ain't that the truth. How do you solve that problem? Try everything at least once.

Ian Schwartz is definitely an intelligent guy judging by that interview. Read it a while back and liked what he had to say.
