Zachary Martin Glass, better known as Zooey, should have been J.D. Salinger’s most widely known and loved character. Sadly he’s overshadowed by Holden Caufield the same way Dean Moriarity overshadows Gerard. We can’t change that. We can celebrate Zooey’s disdain for elites. And we will while celebrating the odd things that cross the transom and catch our fancy.
I’ve been told the web does not lend itself to long-form reading and writing. Consider this, then, an experiment in disproving that hypothesis. Reading and writing are ordered thought. They require more than 140 words or characters. Or so we shall attempt to demonstrate.
Your host on this excursion: I’m Tim McCreight and, depending on your point of view, I’m either a marketing guy who wants to be a professor or a would-be-professor masquerading as a marketing guy. Mostly an autodidact, by education I’m a social science researcher and analyst. By training and avocation I’m a quantitative marketer. By inclination I have a demonstrated ability to find flaws in arguments, especially ones utilizing data.
