Books and print magazines about art have many flaws. They don’t fit in your pockets. Their commenting communities are weak. Even the most acclaimed books fail to provide breaking news. Often, we choose books over far superior internet publications (like this one) for the simple reason that books work on the subway.

Today, the printed word dies: AFC has made an Android app.

As we found out during a trip to Chelsea this weekend, a Family Business internship entails guarding art on a folding chair, in a roughly 10 x 10 foot closet space.

Sounds just like the “training which would be given in an educational environment” that is legally required of an unpaid internship, hahahahahaha!
