Dave Eggers Finally Has A Day Job

We missed this until we saw it on Kottke: McSweeney's, which apparently doesn't have any money, is opening an actual business! Dave Eggers and pals are opening Timothy McSweeney's Design House, which will specialize in what has been dubbed that "distinctive po-mo, neo-classic proto-post-victorian sensibility" that all the kids love so much. We wish them the best at their Hut O' Clip Art. But it's sort of like Dave and friends are moving backwards—isn't it the designers who want to start a magazine, and the magazine folk who crave time to write that novel?
