Is there anything the magazine industry like writing about more than themselves? This is fascinating, but ourobouros-like.

Hating on Boomers? That's such a gen-x thing to do. Relevant in 1982 perhaps, not in 2012.

“If it feels good, do it, whether that means smoking weed and watching porn and never wearing a necktie … or moving your factories overseas and letting commercial banks become financial speculators.”

It's correctly rebutted right away in the article, but this quote is just fun.

I've only poked around a bit, but the article about Valve hiring an economist is genuinely interesting.

Also hilarious that they have a designer take infographics to task when their former employer seemed to be pretty much nothing but.

Cool! I remain mystified that GOOD fired such a talented group of writers and editors, not because it was broke, but so it could chase the social networking rainbow. (Just what the world needs...) Glad to see Tomorrow turned out well.

At first I thought calling themselves GOOD was just a little self-congratulatory and clueless.

Then my friend told me I should apply for a job there. There application form asked for a link to my personal blog. Fuck that Big Brother shit, and fuck it twice for people calling themselves "GOOD." I hope their smug self-satisfied asses are out of business soon.

Ann was a high school classmate of mine, and worked with me on the high school newspaper. It's been a thrill to watch her work appear in places like Mother Jones, Good, and now Tomorrow over the years. If this is the only issue they're doing, I know she'll have something even better lined up in no time.

I dunno, Baby Boomers hating on lazy and entitled Millenials who are hating on the selfish Baby Boomers who raised them is kind of a thing. It's especially common in articles about "workplace culture."

asnider: " I dunno, Baby Boomers hating on lazy and entitled Millenials who are hating on the selfish Baby Boomers who raised them is kind of a thing. It's especially common in articles about "workplace culture.""

As is the almost-complete omission of Gen-X from the discussion.

Don't worry, we're used to it.
