By Dylan Schleicher, published October 4, 2005, at 4:52 PM in News & Opinion

Does anyone else believe in Magazine Karma? Its a theory of mine that at every point in time there is a hot magazine which carries the buzz, the juice, the spirit and community of a very important yet heretofore unidentified community, who can bond and communicate only through the new publication. Prior carriers of Magazine Karma (MK) would be Esquire long ago, Manhattan Inc.

Well, everything. To say that the pace of business is fast is like saying Michael Jordan can play basketball. In our got to have it now world, I sometimes find it challenging to tap my own creative abilities and those of my colleagues.
