Alexander Zaitchik was editor and senior staff writer at Think (Prague) between 1999 and 2001. He first crossed paths with the magazine by publishing a brutal 4,000-word take-down of its editors in the short-lived Globe Coffeehouse zine, Unpronounceable Symbol.

Within a year, Alex was writing features for Think, a weekly column ("Notes from Prague Six"), and most of its book and film reviews. He also conceived and wrote the magazine's wildly popular satirical pull-out, The New Prognosis.

His final article for the magazine, appearing in its 50th issue, was *Let the Kazoos Sound: A Decade of English Press in Prague*.

After leaving Think, Alex founded and edited a bi-weekly alternative newspaper, The Prague Pill. He went on to edit the New York Press, then to Moscow, and is currently based on Earth. The last we heard from him, he was still wearing his Think t-shirt.
