More Malcolm Gladwell

On second thought, how amazing is it that all these Malcolm Gladwell pieces are available for free online! I'd no idea. Very generous. And I suppose a byproduct of his tremendous best seller success. That's the rub isn't it? Either you can afford to give it away because you've made enough? Or no one's placed a value on it so you have to? Either pole at the root. And confusing in the long run. All the models breaking down. Steve Jobs bluntly in response to the new little Amazon reader: "No one reads anymore." I am so confused living through this moment of tremendous change. Sucked in, seduced, loving so much, but then what? Where'd my pillars go?

Not saying anything new. Not saying anything smart. Just leaving crumbs in the forest.
