The Geography of America's Freelance Economy
The Atlantic
Writing in the Atlantic back in 2011, Sara Horowitz, the founder of Freelancers Union, dubbed the "freelance surge" the "Industrial Revolution of our time"—as significant a shift in employment patterns as has been seen since the transition from agriculture to industry in the 1800s. A recent report estimates that there are about 17 million full-employed freelancers, or independent workers, a number than swells to more than 40 million, roughly a third of the workforce, when you include temps, part-timers, contractors, contingent workers, and those who are underemployed or work without employer-sponsored health insurance, 401Ks, or FLEX accounts.

A New Way Forward
Wall Street Journal
While some American art museums receive some government support, most depend on three main sources of money: (1) earned income from admissions, retail, restaurants, and the like; (2) revenue drawn from their endowments; and (3) annual contributions, which too often provide the largest part. In lean times, those donations tend to drop or level off—forcing cuts in staff, programming, and other costs or, sometimes, an increase in debt—and if Washington ever caps the tax-deductibility of charitable donations, as many politicians want, it will make matters worse.

The Humanities, Unraveled
Chronicle of Higher Education
Let me start with the bad news. It is not even news anymore; it is simply bad. Graduate education in the humanities is in crisis. Every aspect, from the most specific details of the curriculum to the broadest questions about its purpose, is in crisis. It is a seamless garment of crisis: if you pull on any one thread, the entire thing unravels.

The Art of Technology
National Journal
John Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design, remembers the night his Japanese-born father attended a parent–teacher conference in Seattle. The teacher gushed, "John excels at both art and math." Later, he overheard his father proudly tell a customer at his tofu store, "John—he's good at math." Four decades later—at a time when economists, corporate executives, and politicians talk about the need for national excellence in science and engineering—Maeda is still trying to ensure that the arts aren't forgotten.

What Happened to Arts Students When the Fees Went Up?
Guardian
When tuition fees tripled last year, with many universities setting their rates at the highest possible amount of £9,000, arts professionals in the country held their breath. Would the introduction of higher fees create a "dearth of training for people who don't have independent wealth or rich parents," as actor Clare Higgins put it? The truth is, it's still hard to pinpoint the impact of last year's fee rises.
