Nico's community is a massive factor in his life. He is very much "in touch," sending emails from the profane to the profound to literally hundreds of people a day. Nico values his friends dearly. Nico recently published a very candid blog entry wherein he discussed his mental state. Last year, Nico realized, all of a sudden, that the medication he had been taking for ten years was numbing him to a number of very important moments in his life. He changed doctors and changed prescriptions, and changed his attitude about pride. - Nadia Sirota
