Linda Immediato Leaves LA Weekly


Brady Westwater alerts us to the departure of Linda Immediato from the LA Weekly:

Anyhoo, gotta say a big, big bravo to Linda Immediato, who tirelessly covered Fashion Week down to its smallest thread, here on Style Council and in the paper, the past two weeks, and of course seasons past. Alas, it was her last hurrah, as my dear S.C. co-hort has left the Weekly to do more exciting things in the world of journalism. You go girl!

Immediato is such a cool name–she should lose the Linda and join the ranks of the mono-named.

GOOD’s: Nov/Dec High Tech Low Tech


GOOD’s High Tech/Low Tech issue hits the magazine racks, and here’s a peek inside:

Bruce Bueno de Mesquita The New Nostradamus?
Michael Lerner profiles the man some think is the most brilliant foreign policy analyst, and others think is a wacko. Cool.

Morgan Clendaniel looks at Second Life. We’re sick of Second Life. Can’t someone invent a virtual plague and kill the place off?

Sam Slovick is guided by a 12 year-old through Skid Row. It reads quite a bit like a piece he wrote for Whole Life Times, last June. His LA Weekly piece on the same subject was criticized by Brady Westwater, who would be a great subject for GOOD.

If It Ain’t Broke explores seven practices that haven’t changed much over time for one simple reason: they got it right on the first try. One of these is prostitution and another is hanging. Good grief.

GOOD is having their first anniversary party this Friday, so subscribe and RSVP, in that order, please.
