part one: our students
part two: two articles and one short blurb from "the arts" section of yesterday's new york times.
- "still vital, 'on the road' turns 50" - from penny vlagopoulos, columbia university: "I still think it's a rite-of-passage novel. The whole idea of the freedom of the open road is still very much alive for young people." from bill savage, northwestern university: "Undergraduates can really relate to it because they live in such a mediated world with the Internet, the cellphone and the iPod."
- "they've just got to get a message to you" - jeff leeds: "On Gwen Stefani's recent tour, as many as 20 percent of the audience at some shows agreed to pay 99 cents for text messages and the chance to win better seats, according to the mobile marketing company Impact Mobile. At festivals like Lollapalooza, thousands of fans sign up to receive continuous updates from concert organizers about promotions and special events."
- "another radio station for new york and web" - "WFUV says it has been awarded a $500,000 grant from the New York State Music Fund to support the development of a second full-time radio station for listeners in their 20s and 30s, which will emphasize independently and locally produced music. [The station] will be available via the Internet at wfuv.org and mobile streaming audio and, in the New York area, as a high-definition radio channel at 90.7 FM."
