Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

image* here's Lauren Weinstein's last for-print Village Voice cartoon, as we wait to see how the paper's cartoons make the transfer to a proposed on-line version of the iconic publication. I'm curious, because from what I know they've fired nearly the entire staff and they never had an on-line culture or much material on-line to be seen. If they only ran cartoons, though, I'd be happy for those cartoonists with those gigs. Hopefully, Lauren Weinstein and Karl Stevens retain these profiles in some happy publication somewhere.

* this would seem potentially significant in terms of the pedigrees involved, although nothing's a 100 percent certain slam dunk anymore. It's interesting to see on-line work take a position as equal partner with game and book, but why wouldn't an on-line work have that status?

* finally, Minna Sundberg maps the languages and Emma Taggert appreciates the result.
