Everyone’s favorite power list is in the works. That’s right: the quasi-annual media power couples. Out this January!
So while you spin the dreidel after Thanksgiving turkey, trim trees and attend the flurry of seasonally drunken media parties (and take part in the requisite drunken gossip), ask yourself: who should be on The New York Observer‘s media power list?
Esquire editor at large AJ Jacobs is starting a new advice column, he announced today in a blog post. But it is not just a regular old advice column. Instead of just getting advice from Mr. Jacobs, the column will include curated advice from his “100,000 Facebook Friends*” with whom he is sharing the byline.
“You will be getting the combined experience of a brigade of Ann Landerses, a stadium full of Dan Savages,” Mr. Jacobs wrote. “As for me, I will be the Nate Silver of this experiment, curating and collating and commenting on the mass’s responses. I will print the best, funniest, and oddest answers (providing full credit, of course). And we will determine the best course together.”
