This sucks. I just found out that my neighborhood museum, The Walker Arts Center, which was a pioneer in digital arts and cross-platform arts initiatives, decided last week to dismantle most of the new media team. I hope Steve Dietz doesn't leave town, as he was a great asset to this community.
Have you seen the new Wired (in print)? It's pretty awesome. Rem Koolhaas plays the role of something like "Guest Editor / Impresario." You can see some of it online, but it's much more elaborate in magazine form.
Guns 'N Roses cover band (heh) will feature Slash, Duff, Matt, and.... Scott Weiland.
