Gladwell is a staff writer for the New Yorker and wrote two little books called The Tipping Point and Blink. You may have heard me mention them and him on the site from time to time (or all the time, rather).

Down and Out, Cory's first novel, takes the social and economic dynamics of the web and throws them into the real world for us to chew on.

TopStyle is an XHTML/CSS editor for Windows by the guy who created the excellent HomeSite.
