Kennedy Interview for Reason TV

As a teenager watching late-night MTV in the 1990s, I somehow failed to predict that, 20 years later, I would be interviewed by Kennedy for a leading libertarian publication on the subject of federal funding for the arts. And yet, this happened:

Here’s the full article and video.

Sandy-Affected Artists and Organizations: We’d Like to Help

Although Fractured Atlas is a national organization, our office is in midtown Manhattan and about 40% of our members are in the NYC-area. As such, we’ve had front row seats for Sandy and its aftermath. Fortunately everyone on our staff is fine, and our office is fully operational. Many of the artists and organizations in our community were [...]

New Models Redux

In our last episode, I responded to Michael Kaiser’s frustration with “new models” chatter.
Well, this week he’s back with New Models, Part 2, and you knew I wasn’t going to just sit here (even if I am supposedly on vacation!) Kaiser once again criticizes the critics for a lack of specificity:
The constant drumbeat for new models for [...]

Swimming Downstream in the Current of History

Michael Kaiser is fed up with the ceaseless chatter about the need for “new models” in the arts.

Looking for artists in Georgia’s 2nd Congressional District!

My Data’s Bigger than Your Data

Perhaps the hottest lingo in Silicon Valley these days is “big data”. Once upon a time, the only folks who needed to worry about massive, unstructured (or semi-structured) data sets were scientists running weather simulators or investment banks designing high-frequency trading strategies. Not anymore.
