Glasstire founder waves the online arts journalism banner in new NEA blog

by Bill Davenport July 25, 2011

Glasstire founder Rainey Knudson’s has been invited to blog on the NEA’s website; in her first post she explains the alarming decline among print journalists who have been, like dinosaurs, suffering a mass extinction over the past half-decade. Continuing her fatalistic  thought into the future, she foretells the doom of even mildly discursive writing online: “I don’t know what our language will be like in a couple of centuries—for the great-great-grandchildren of the first texters, this paragraph may read like Beowulf.” Her point, though, is a positive one: through all the technological changes past and to come, people will “continue to discuss the art of their time in the language of their time.”
