The Principles of VAGUEness
about VAGUEpolitix - PRESS KIT


VAGUEpolitix is the brainchild of four media addicts. An incredible collection of great, talented people gravitated toward VAGUE and made it happen. We thank all of you for your generosity with your time, your ideas and your help. Thanks especially to Web Lab and Marc Weiss who believed in VAGUE when all was still vagueness.
