The Auckland Art Gallery is up and blogging with an early entry about relocating the research library. Our test for great blogs is how personal are they? Do they have a point of view? Did they tell us something new – and relevant? AAG have called theirs Outpost. That’s a start but here’s hoping it gets more opinionated, more inside-out and eases up on the process stuff. After all an Outpost is “A detachment of troops stationed at a distance from a main force.” One comment we liked in the rather long description of the library relocation, “During the pack-up, we found all sorts of intriguing items including a newspaper from 1974 that had an article on how Mick Jagger was still touring at the ripe old age of 31!” How about a picture?
