Selections are added daily and collected each quarter to the blog's Flipboard--this is the current cover for the Spring 2014 edition
One of the pleasures of social media (yes, there are a remaining few) is the information sharing that has become the life blood of communication in the world of art and culture. When I first began blogging in 2010, one of my goals was to figure out a way to share some of the informative, inspiring, unexpected, and under-the-radar information related to the world of art and visual culture that I came across or was shared with me via students, colleagues, friends, and my various social media feeds. Each week, my weekly round-up post was where I cherry picked the best of the week's links, mostly from Twitter, but increasingly from my YouTube and Facebook feeds as well. Over time, this feature evolved into a new format-- Flipboard-- a place to collect and curate the flow of social media information in a unique and visually dynamic way, allowing followers to subscribe and keep up to date on all of the information I collected day to day.
As I return to my blogging, I am looking forward to getting this part of my activities up and running again, and so I invite you to visit Avant-Guardian Musing's Flipboard. I still plan to cherry pick several articles in a weekly post to focus attention on what is making news in the Twitterverse and beyond, but I have already set up this quarter's Spring 2014 magazine with dozens of interesting links, images, videos, and articles that have captured my attention the past few months. The good news is that Flipboard is now far more widely available beyond the original iPhone and iPad app (it can be added now to almost any phone or tablet platform). And to the delight of may Flipboard fans, one of the nicest ways to engage with the platform that was not available previously is via the old-fashioned desk-top computer where the images, videos, and articles are easiest to read and view.
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
