The Latest Fad? Event-Listings
It's interesting to witness three cultural sites launching events listings as bolt ons to their regular services.
It’s interesting to witness three cultural sites launching events listings as bolt ons to their regular services. Within a week PSFK has launched The Purple List, then TrendWatching have launched a TrendEvents service and now We Make Money Not Art has a del.icio.us list of calls and events.
“Great minds think alike,” TW’s Reinier Evers told us in an email congratulating us on TPL‘s launch. Is this just a blog fad or does it reflect something deeper? Maybe it’s a reflection of a broken system of information distribution. For us here we were frustrated by how difficult it was to get information on a wide variety of events that we were interested in. For a long time Flavorpill has been championing the ‘entertainment’ side of the march – but, like WMMNA and TW we also wanted to have a mix of events that stimulated us professionally and intellectually as well.
