The human interaction part of this is intriguing, and I'll probably continue to follow it. BUT, it annoys the crap out of me that it's being presented as "a design experiment". Seriously—how much more pretentious can you get?
Not to mention that, realistically, if the two were working either as freelancers, or for small design firms, they would have neither the time nor the resources for anything like this. Three dates a week *and* weekly visits to a therapist? And in NYC? One thing that's going to come up in any *real* relationship is money; their current positions suggest that money is something that neither of them has to worry about—that's a huge flaw in the "experiment".
