’ Who’s Afraid of Tyler Green?’



In an extended post, Edward Winkleman discusses what art blogs are, what they are not, and what this means for their relationship with discussions of art in magazines (aka the standard media). It’s an interesting and important read. I personally am a bit weary of those kinds of discussions, though, especially since they often involve bloggers telling the standard media why they are doomed (a curious statement, often based on a combination of wishful thinking and outright delusion) or the standard media taking cheap swipes at what they consider to be flaky journalism (ditto). Much to his credit, Edward steers around this, and quite elegantly so.
