Kickstarter Expects to Provide More Funding to the Arts than NEA
Talking Points Memo Idea Lab    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Kickstarter is having an amazing year, even by the standards of other white-hot web startup companies, and more is yet to come. One of the company's three cofounders, Yancey Strikler, said that Kickstarter is on track to distribute over $150 million dollars to its users' projects in 2012, or more than the entire fiscal year 2012 budget for the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA), which was $146 million.

Dear Painter...
Frieze    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What does the term "abstraction" mean to nonfigurative painters working today? Frieze spoke to five artists, all of whom make work grounded in process and materiality. There is a dissonance between the directness of their work and the fuzzier set of interests and objectives—high-minded, metaphysical, and historical—that "abstraction" suggests. More

The DIY Copyright Revolution
Slate    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It is something of a fluke that copyright law has become so intertwined with our online lives. For most people, the first things that were easy to create and distribute online—articles, pictures, music, movies—also happened to be material protected by copyright. This trained us to assume that we need permission to do just about anything in the digital space—and, increasingly, in the real world. More

Bill Would Sell Off State's Art Collection
Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
So how broke is the state of Washington? It's so broke it could start selling off its art collection—including some masterpieces—and using the money to pay for low-income students to go to college. That's the gist of a new bill being introduced by Senator Karen Keiser. More

The Dangerous "Research Works Act"
TechCrunch    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Poorly thought-through copyright bills seem to be popular in Congress, which is currently considering a bill called "The Research Works Act," whose purpose is to restrict public access to publicly funded research. The bill is sponsored by large academic publishers who are keen to keep all research, including publicly funded research, behind paywalls in perpetuity. Academics are up in arms about this bill, and so are universities, and funding bodies. More

Tate's National Photographic Archive "Rescued from Skip" after Internal Tipoff
Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Bones of the Book
N+1    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I recently bought a book about the future of books. It's called The Late American Novel: Writers on the Future of Books, and features twenty-six authors describing what they think might become of literature. Given the collection's prophetic subtitle, and that I was reading it on my new, still-extraterrestrial-seeming iPad, I was surprised to find that very few of the authors mention ebooks. Those who do tend to regard them with dread and disgust, like a farmhand studying a handful of fallen locusts. One author compared ebooks to astronaut food; another to Mortal Kombat. Another suggested that perhaps we could create ereaders that would exactly resemble books, with cardboard covers and hundreds of papery pages and so on, but whose cover graphics and print could morph from Salinger to Tolstoy in a click.
