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.

This book needs more love

By 800-CEO-READ, published May 25, 2005, at 2:44 PM in News & Opinion

Whole New Mind: A Primer for the Conceptual Age

We are witnessing a shift from the logical, linear, computer-like capabilities of the Information Age to an economy and a society built on the inventive, empathic, big picture capabilities of whats rising in its place, the Conceptual Age.

And while this isnt the definitive handbook into personally delving into that new age, it is an excellent primer -- with caveats.

One of the things about Malcolm Gladwell books is that the subject matter is broad. That means he can be quoted in any media source. His latest interview is with ESPN.
