Hi Tom, Thanks for the feedback about Rhizome Today (http://www.rhizome.org/today) - just copying part of it here since it's attached to a now-deleted post:
"I think you should leave these posts up on the blog, rather than have a monthly self-edited highlights post. Is the concern that these daily posts will overwhelm more slowly published regular content?"
It's not so much out of any "concern." It's more that the knowledge that the posts will be (semi-)deleted is quite freeing; it changes the writing process in ways that feel productive. Maybe it's also freeing for readers, in that it doesn't have to feel like another thing on the pile that you have to get through.
Your point about chat is also well taken. Rhizome Today is genuinely an experiment, and how this goes may inform some more lasting changes to the site (or not). We're working on experimenting with how we might make chat more visible too.
