Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community. Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets.

But in order to continue doing so, we need your support.

We recently ventured out to model training camp for three glorious days to accompany 12, newly signed stunning models. Needless to say, the whole experience was one we'll never forget. One might think that models would be intimidating or aloof, but we're happy to report they were quite the opposite: warm, kind, outgoing, and super easy to talk to.
