Happy Monday blogoverse! Today we are happy to report that the guvmint doesn’t care about my grandfather’s Chrysler LeBaron and that they’ve signed deals with the popular free media sites–youtube, flickr, vimeo, and blip. Oh, and the Library of Congress will be podcasting, with official listing in the iTunes store. They’ve even got a 1000% customizable “my LOC” subsite! The LOC is already on the Flickr.
Archivist, SD conspirator, and web-1.0 aficionado Jesse Aaron Cohen has just celebrated the 50th installment of his monthly email exhibition series, a set of curated images and links sent to subscribers once a month for the past several years. Often the material is drawn from his day job as archivist at a yiddish library/archive in Manhattan, but over the years there’s been plenty of other cultural ephemera included in the exhibitions. They are awesome! Subscribe to them!
Slides from all 50 months-worth of exhibitions are going to be shown as part of an upcoming ‘real life‘ event on internet bloggers and artists.
Quoth the Archivist:
A bunch of internet artists and bloggers who will be doing 4 hours ‘in real life’. As part of this guy Lance’s presentation, he is asking several other artists to show their work via slide show, and I am giving him all 50 exhibitions to use. So my exhibitions will be featured alongside a bunch of other projects on 8 March, 12â€“4pm, at the Capricious Art Space in W-burg.
