Get the Point

We just heard from one Etay Zwick, who has a new magazine. Its first issue looks like it has some articles that may interest some of you. I know I’m intrigued. But don’t be deceived by his excitement; he is, as you’ll learn in a few sentences, an editor!

The Point magazine is a new, Chicago-based publication devoted to
rigorous intellectual writing on contemporary life.  The magazine is
motivated above all by the conviction that the best lives require
confrontation with the best ideas, and that the failure to understand
the texture of daily life has had, and will continue to have, a
deleterious effect on its quality.  You can visit the website at
to visit more articles available (full disclosure: I’m one of the
Editors of The Point.  But there are some genuinely great articles
