Twitter has blown up. The Reddit thread about the story has 4, comments and counting.
I cannot believe Caroline Calloway is still going. When will this end. I want my life back. Calloway has ,plus Instagram followers. As soon as she received an email from Beach forewarning her that the article was coming, she started writing about the piece on her Instagram feed and on her stories, and sharing screenshots of private conversations. She built a huge amount of hype for the story before it came out, teetering between magnanimity and hysteria. Do you guys have any friendships that have ended that still bring you pain? This afternoon I found out that one of the two people I have hurt the most in this world will be publishing an essay about our friendship for The Cut.
But it will be different than the articles that called me a scammer for clickbait. I know this not because I have read her essay but because Natalie is the best writer I know. I still love her.
Our friendship ended 2 years ago, but I still walk around New York sometimes, listening to music, running errands, thinking about her. Maybe she has custody of that story. Sometimes I all but gag with guilt. Sometimes I write emails to her in my head. Natalie suffered all the consequences of being loved by an addict and none of the benefits of being loved by the woman that recovery made me into. In early August Natalie liked one of my Instagram photos by accident.
I knew it was by accident because I know Natalie. But still! I thought: Maybe she is checking in on me because she still wants to be friends! Maybe she still loves me, too. I realize now that she must have been working on the article about us that will be published soon by New York Magazine. Go leave a comment on nymag. Every digital impression will be another reason for The Cut to hire Natalie again and to pay her even more next time.
So start anticipating this article. Get excited. Read it.
I hope I can support Natalie now in ways I never did during my addiction. Since the story dropped, Calloway has been taking to Instagram to obsessively posting about the article and her relationship with the writer, rewriting the history of her own Instagram feed to edit Beach into the narrative. Calloway has been bubbling in and out of mainstream consciousness for several years. She blew up in as an early Instagram influencer who signed a six-figure book deal.
What happens then? There are far too many organizations out there desperately trying to find a way to use data better—do not waste your time with one that you need to convince that data is important. Today, the idea of working for a data-ignorant company is like working for a company that refuses to let people access the internet.
Do they still use paper ledgers for accounting too? Slide rules? Horse-drawn carriages? It is not too late for an organization that realizes data is valuable, wants to do something about it, but has no idea what to do—but there is no time left to waste.
The fact is that most organizations today find truth in the above statement, and there is certainly still hope for them. Especially since they have us. All rights reserved. Anthony J.

We know a few truths about people: 1. People resist change. People are watching out for themselves above all else. Even if doing something would benefit themselves, see point 1. We must remove the blockers and help that value become realized.
