‘At the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, the names or social-media handles of 4,259 “curators” appear on the title wall of “#SocialMedium,” a new show of 40 paintings chosen by public vote.

In Athens, Ga., voters dipped into the Georgia Museum of Art’s collection, helping decide which canvases the institution would sell.’

"Over the last few years, Google has run a reseller program for Google Apps For Work, as well as programs around some of its other services. Today it is relaunching and consolidating these programs under the Google Apps for Work and Education Partner Program moniker.
The new partner program will combine Google’s existing programs around Apps, Chrome, Cloud Platform, Maps and Search. Google says the idea here is to allow its 'partners to better sell, service and innovate across the Google for Work and Education suite of products and platforms.'"
"New York may have some of the finest museums in the world, but not all of the city's best art is hidden behind a $20 entrance fee. Works by renowned artists and lesser-known locals line the walls and hang from the ceilings of galleries small and large, and visitors can often peruse them for no fee, often with a glass of wine in hand (if it's a Thursday or sometimes Friday).

Game of Thrones is currently at its fourth season and it has been confirmed by show creators D.B Weiss and David Benioff that the fifth season will officially have flashbacks. HBO has renewed the show for another two seasons."
"Angelina Jolie's Unbroken became the last of 2014's high-profile awards hopefuls to screen for awards pundits when Universal unveiled it through simultaneous screenings on both coasts Sunday — and, despite mixed advance buzz and competition that includes plenty of other extremely dark films structured around strong male performances, I suspect that it will be a key player throughout the remainder of the race to the Oscars."

"The benefits for Twitter fall into a couple buckets. Number one, the most important, is that we believe as companies start to run their business operations on Twitter they will naturally understand the platform better and will be more likely to engage on the platform. All kinds of good things happen for Twitter when that happens. It gets our data more deeply distributed inside of enterprises, which we believe will have real benefits in terms of future engagement with our platform, whether through adoption or advertising."

" Six years is a long time for an art museum to go dark, and at Harvard, make that two museums, and eventually three. Such was the case when the university decided to unite its three very different museums — the Fogg (Western European and North American art), the Busch-Reisinger (art from German-speaking Europe) and the Arthur M. Sackler (Asian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean art) — under one new Renzo Piano roof. Closings started in 2008, with a promised 2013 reopening. The clock ticked... "
