How do new questions about the editorial/$ wall evolve as we make a final leap to the Internet? Links appearing next to books used to be a big ethical debate in arts journalism--now it's standard on most sites.

How do you honestly keep in mind the donating foundation (with/out transparency itself?) and how is that being played out differently online than in-print?

The Big Idea in Conclusion on the panel: this is the beginning.

Optimism that there will always be arts journalism, and that's great.

But the question is on the "be"--who is getting paid? (And what amount? Is this still a job?)

"Thank television for those few fat years."

Starts to send the bludgeoning message that no, you will be blogging out the goodness of your heart.

Sasha Anawalt more aptly describes this as an "awkward" transition of print-to-online models and acknowledges that there probably won't be one single solution to the next step.

Deborah Marrow (the Getty Foundation) doesn't believe foundations/philanthropy groups will be the savior of arts journalism. Like Anawalt, this is going to be a combination of financial resources ("hybrid models").
"Strategic Philanthropy" is a new approach being taken by foundations.

"Army of now-freelance journalist" is terrifying? Exciting? Maybe depends on if you are one?
