Just started a new site called web tools for the arts. It’ll soon be an online resource for artists and arts professionals to learn how (and which) web tools can best rock their world.
This site will help arts professionals get maximum mileage out of their web browsers.
Yes, this site will focus on browser-based tools — meaning tools or applications that run from your browser window (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome) usually without any downloading or installation required. A great example of a web-based tool would be your webmail – whether it’s your Hotmail, your Gmail, your work email that you can access via webmail – could you imagine life without being able to access your email from any browser in the world?
Browser-based tools are the key to mobility, accessibility, efficiency, and money saved.

By the way, if you are sensitive to the needs and challenges of arts profesionals and would like to contribute to this site, please contact me! Initially, I had envisioned this new site as a public wiki so that anyone could suggest a tool and talk about its uses. But frankly I don’t know too many (read: any) arts managers who have time to contribute to a wiki that I can’t promise has readers yet. So I’ve started off solo to get the ball rolling. If you want to pen (type) a review, or if you just want to suggest a tool for me to review, get in touch.
