Here’s what’s new with the blogroll:
- Good Intentions Are Not Enough has a new URL and feed. Still not the most easy-to-type web address, but it’s an improvement over the last one…
- GiveWell has moved from givewell.net to givewell.org. Feeds should still work for the GiveWell Blog.
- I’ve removed several apparently inactive blogs from the list.
And here’s the new crop!
The Art Law Blog
Similar to the Nonprofit Law Blog and Nonprofit Law Prof Blog, Donn Zaretsky’s Art Law Blog is an intelligent and engaging compendium of legal news and disputes from around the globe. The major focus is decidedly on the visual arts, but the blog occasionally dips into issues that affect other art forms as well.
This is Rosetta Thurman’s semi-regular column for The Chronicle of Philanthropy, and boy, does she play the flame-thrower over there! A sample of recent post titles: Nonprofit CEOs Who Want For-Profit Salaries Should Work at For-Profit Companies. Do Nonprofit Boards Really Want Younger Members? How Not to Do Diversity. So far, the Chronicle readers seem to mostly be playing nice, but she’s starting to earn herself a few haters in the comments. Grab the popcorn!
Orchestra R/Evolution, you may remember, is the home of the blog conversation that took place in advance of the League of American Orchestras’s annual conference last month, for which I contributed a handful of articles. It was really one of the best online group conversations I’ve ever participated in, both in terms of structure and content, and gave me lots to think about as I entered and emerged from conference season. Still, I went back and forth on whether to include it, given that it was ostensibly created for a specific event that has now passed. On the off chance that it will continue, however, I think it’s worth adding to the blogroll – and even if not, the archived posts are well worth perusing if you haven’t seen them.
This is one of three(!) official blogs of Theatre Communications Group, the primary national service organization for theater. Among the bloggers are TCG employee Gus Schulenberg, who is already on our blogroll as the primary writer for the Flux Theatre Ensemble’s blog, and Rob Weinert-Kendt, better known to Createquity readers as the proprietor of The Wicked Stage. Gus has a recent interview up with yet another blogroll denizen, 24 Usable Hours’s Devon Smith.
