'The year the art world went on line...'

[cross-posted at Grammar.police]

If I can, I'd like to direct your attention to Carolyn Zick's Studio Notebook, where Carolyn happens upon a decade-old copy of Art in America and reflects on the way we was digital (offering, along the way, a dose of perspective to the internets-addicted among us).

1995: the internet's "Pong Days," as Carolyn says.

Something to bear in mind, I suppose, even as we gripe about museums' online galleries or level righteous indignation at art world Luddites.
