Wot is ARTicles, anyhow? « PREV | NEXT »: Editor Interview: Sharon Waxman, TheWrap

Shifting Course

In answer to John's query, I offer the following, from an NAJPer responding to the return of ARTicles:

It would be nice to read commentary that isn't endlessly referential to other bloggy things. I'm already overwhelmed with all the insider feuds burning up Twitter and Facebook. And endless commiseration about the collapse of journalism. I'm so over it, already. I feel like it's all become a giant navel-gazing festival. Hope Version 2.0 transcends all that!

I agree with the NAJPer about everything he's hoping ARTicles won't be -- even though we're still figuring out quite what it will be. Broadening our subject matter, so that it includes both arts journalism and the arts, is key.
