A co-worker tipped me off to this feature at ESPN.com.

It's an ESPN guy's series of e-mail exchanges with Malcolm Gladwell. Part II is better than Part 1, especially the section in which Gladwell explains why he would be a better GM than Isiah Thomas. His take on baseball and "Moneyball" is interesting, too.

I can't imagine ever being bored by Gladwell, unless, as Simmons points out, he were to pull a John McPhee and write about rocks for 20 years.

Holy Jim Murray, JJ, that's a great link.

Does anyone else think that this era of internet content is like the early days of rock and roll -- where people woke up each morning (or so I've read) knowing that overnight a whole bunch of new and great things had been created and were just waiting to be sampled?
