Giving Program Pick For February, 2014: The Rest Is Noise

This month’s Giving Program pick is the always popular blog from the ever-sharp king of classical music culture, Alex Ross. His blog, The Rest Is Noise, is arguably the most popular culture blog around and it doesn’t take much to realize why. Granted, you might find his publishing platform a bit too austere for its own good. For instance, beyond the search function, there are no date based or category archives nor will you find any tag clouds. For the record, his initial post was on April 24, 2004 but it would […]

Giving Program Pick For January, 2014: You’ve Cott Mail

Byte for byte, you can’t beat You’ve Cott Mail for arts news. It’s a one-two punch of good old fashioned email newsletter and an active Twitter feed that provides a steady stream of theme oriented mailings and topical tweets.

Giving Program Pick For December, 2013: Mae Mai

My choice for December’s Giving Program recipient is Jon Silpayamanant’s Mae Mai; a broad collection of posts on a variety of classical music topics both traditional and contemporary.

Additionally, Jon does an excellent job at providing info and insight into an area of the business that usually gets the short end of media coverage […]

Giving Program Pick For November, 2013: The Iron Tongue Of Midnight

My choice for November’s Giving Program recipient is longtime blog author and all around sharp knife in the cultural drawer, Lisa Hirsch. Her blog, Iron Tongue of Midnight, dates back to 2004 which makes it an official cultural blog plankowner. For the past nine years Lisa has published a string of thought provoking posts about everything from concert reviews to the business of classical music. Her top-shelf writing chops are matched only by her credentials; she questions conventional wisdom, diligently interacts with readers, and knows the difference between observational and empirical understanding.

Get On Board The Giving Program Train

Shoshana Fanizza from Audience Development Specialists (ADS) posted an article at her business blog on 9/27/2013 about the value of contributing to sources of free information, ideas, and data throughout the field of culture blogging. As a result, she decided to lead by example by means of “deciding on a person to donate or contribute to based on how often I visit and read their information.” I’m honored that Fanizza chose Adaptistration as the target of her very first contribution and I’ve decided to follow suit and not only adopt her Giving […]
