Allow me to draw you a map of my near future.
Artblog.net now has a revenue model. I'm about to form an umbrella company that will pick up some of the intentions of Drawing Project and also include the digital and data work I do. This new entity will relaunch Go See Art, which will have a mechanism to produce a revenue stream. Later it will pursue other efforts, some of which come from the Drawing Project agenda, others which interest me but didn't fit well into it.
Without giving too much away, Go See Art is going to become the art calendar listing you've always dreamed of. Well, the one I've dreamed of, anyway. I have completed the theoretical work using relational databases to describe the ontology of an art opening, and have started to figure out how to build them. Advertisers will find it cheap and easy to get in on the fun.
I'm looking to have Miami listings on Go See Art operational by June 1, and the revenue mechanism working by June 15. In the meantime I expect a lot of my wetware bandwidth to get consumed; I'm also going to switch hosts, and may incorporate. So just to let you know - posting around here will continue but may become sporadic and erratic and involve a lot of excerpts from my Balthus and Clement Greenberg books and may occasionally consist of administrative announcements.
But once we get through it, oh, just you wait, my friends. Just you wait.
