Re: “Sky's The Limit

I had forgotten all about that. :-) Glad to help.

Congratulations and good job on a full year of arts coverage. Here's to many more!

Re: “Exciting Lighting

I like how the tiger is all, "Hey, wanna see my lights? Get a reeeeaaal close look. No, closer."

Re: “Pay The Artist

As a creative (web developer), I know the pain of being asked to donate something "for the exposure" or "for your portfolio" (though usually it's small businesses, not non-profits). Originally, it was exciting because, hey, they wanted me, and even though they couldn't pay me, they came to me anyway.

Then I read a study that discussed how people don't value things they get for free. It's just a function of human nature; we don't appreciate things we don't pay for. I realized that my work was less appreciated when I gave it away than if I just charged for it, and I want what I do to be appreciated (and admittedly, I'd also like to feed my family).

I'm much less likely to give away my work now. This is a good article, Hugh. Thank you.

Re: “The Fall and Rise of the Ruins

I'm sad that there will be no fountains (how cool would it be if Indianapolis boasted the world's only geyser/ruin combo?), but I'm glad that my favorite park will be updating this thing I've wondered about for ages and ages.
