Eulogy for Arts and Letters Daily

Chris introduced me to Arts and Letters Daily {veritas odit moras}, an intellectual's filter to news and articles on the Internet, run from

Arts & Letters Daily

University Business, LLC

135 Madison Ave., 4th Floor

New York, NY 10016.

Today, however, is a sad day. Chris just told me that they died. Here's the message off the main page:

The magazine Lingua Franca and its parent company University Business LLC filed for bankruptcy earlier this year (Trustee, Robert L. Geltzer, of Tendler, Biggins & Geltzer, 1556 Third Avenue, Suite 505, New York, NY 101128). We understand that the assets of University Business, including this Website, are to be auctioned in New York City on October 24, 2002. For further information, we suggest contacting the Trustee.

Since the filing, Arts & Letters Daily has been kept afloat by the goodwill of its editors, Tran Huu Dung and Denis Dutton, and it is now time for them to move on. They will continue to supply content on other similar sites with which they are associated: SciTech Daily Review; Denis Dutton�s Philosophy & Literature site; Business Daily Review. Human Nature Review has fine science reporting, Arts Journal is our favorite for arts news, and Google News is invaluable for newspapers and magazines.

Another Internet staple bites the dust. The madness continues ...
