Benefit Magazine first appeared as an out-placement program for Mayor Newsom’s office/bedroom staff. It was definitely some sort of nexus, even a nest of nexes.
So when the Ruby-shopping-a-book rumor came around last week I again checked the Magazine’s website to see if the May-June issue had finally appeared. (The site was down, under construction.)
Further googling got me to a nice post called power begets power powerlessness beget… zilch nada nothing oblivion.
This was on a blog called SF Bay Area, authored apparently by Robert Solis. I looked at a bunch of his posts and he has a POV I find simpatico. He is hot on the Tourk trail.
I’m putting a link to his blog, SF Bay Area, in the right column.
It looks like Benefit Magazine has changed hands. That hotshot Gaskin appears to have departee’d. I’ll be looking to SF Bay Area for insight on this.
I’m hoping Mr Solis will also explore Aware Magazine (publisher Christopher Caen) for us.
Oh the humanity! Oh the clay paper!
