JSTOR for Life
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"HOURS OF FUN AWAIT ME TONIGHT," wrote Nicole Villeneuve, a 2009 graduate of Yale University, on Twitter. She was not speaking about a party, but she was referring to a reunion of sorts. In a deal with JSTOR, Villeneuve's alma mater had just announced it was giving her—and all Yale alumni—free access to the academic journal archive's catalogue. Yale is the latest of nineteen institutions to provide unlimited access to JSTOR to alumni through the Alumni Access pilot, which opened with little fanfare in 2009. More

Intellectual Roots of Wall Street Protest Lie in Academe
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Academics have become frequent visitors to Zuccotti Park, a pedestrian plaza in the heart of New York's financial district that is now the site of a nearly month-long protest, Occupy Wall Street. Famous scholars such as Cornel West, Slavoj Zizek, and Frances Fox Piven have spoken to the crowd, with their remarks dispersed, word-for-word, from one cluster of people to the next through a "human megaphone." Many others, such as Lawrence Lessig, have lent their support from farther away, as the demonstrations have spread to cities and college campuses nationwide. More

Associated Press via CBS News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Researchers in South Africa have discovered what may have been the world's earliest artist's studio. A 100,000-year-old workshop used to mix and store the reddish pigment ochre has been located in Blombos Cave on the rugged southern coast near Cape Town.

Van Gogh Death Claim Unconvincing
BBC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Van Gogh: The Life consists of nine-hundred-plus pages of intensely research biographical detail about an artist who, in ten prolific years, introduced an expressionistic style of painting that changed art forever. It is an important book, which has been well written by its two Pulitzer Prize-winning authors (won in 1991 for the biography of Jackson Pollock). We learn that Vincent van Gogh was much more unstable, erratic, and promiscuous than previously thought. More

Too Much Too Young?
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One of the curiosities of recent years has been the furor surrounding young artists whose works are being traded on the secondary market for gigantic sums. The secondary (or resale) market has historically relied upon dead or aging artists for its supply, but the heat around contemporary art has fuelled a new phenomenon: an emerging resale market for artists in the early stages of their careers.

Protecting Property Rights on the Web: Thoughts on the Protect IP Act
IPI Issue Brief    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over the centuries, civilized societies have learned that certain behaviors are harmful and destructive, and so societies have set up structures and institutions, both voluntary and compulsory, to encourage behavior that is beneficial to society, and especially to discourage behavior that is harmful to society. Given our understanding of basic protections for civil society in the analogue world, it would be strange to argue that the best way for online society to flourish is to carve out the internet as a zone free of such basic protections.
