Crowdsourcing at Cultural Weekly

What do you want from Cultural Weekly? I want more.

Behind the scenes, we have been building a new site. We plan to re-launch in about a month. Our new site will feature about more articles on the home page, links to like-minded sites, and better social networking features.

Since beginning Cultural Weekly nine months ago, we’ve had a steady increase in visitors. But there are limitations – I’m doing most of the writing and due to the limits of my awareness and time, we don’t cover as much of the cultural landscape as we might.

Here’s where you come in. We’re looking for people who are blogging already, who write about how our creative culture shapes our society, and have a unique perspective. People who are driven to make our creative culture better. People who are smart and articulate and passionate, and who would like to have their posts shared on Cultural Weekly and whose sites reciprocally would feature Cultural Weekly’s content.

If you’d like to recommend bloggers to be featured on our expanded site, please email me at or post a comment below. We’ll keep you updated on developments as we get closer to our re-launch.

Image by Nick Gentry who paints on discarded computer discs and cassette tapes.  He writes: “Throughout history, information has always been recorded on physical objects. Important documents, favourite songs, videos and more were stored on mountains of tapes, polaroids, cassettes and disks. As media is rapidly absorbed into the World Wide Web the rich variety of formats of the past are becoming obsolete.”
