and you're right, ole alex is a hunk.

thanks wilfred

the new site is having some tech problems though...not sure if I've already overloaded it or what, but comments are freakin' out.

hey, the art of the motorcycle rocked. and the peggy guggenheim museum in venice is nice. don't care much for bilbao, though.

And he wept that there were no more markets to conquer ...

Edward,

So you know about your comment section. I tried to post a message for Mac, but it fritzed-out on me.

yeah, thanks NeoDude...I'm not sure what's up with that.

You did eventually post a comment there, though.

Sure, which is why it belonged here.

And blogspot is way too generous giving out their raw error messages to users. I mean honestly. .

at com.google.blogger.base.Identity.getBlog(Identity.java:188)
at com.google.blogger.frontend.CommentCreateFormHandler.execute(CommentCreateFormHandler.java:103)
at com.google.servlet.handlers.AuthenticatedHandler.execute(AuthenticatedHandler.java:106)

you don't want to be giving your architecture details out.

Edward, I can tell you conclusively that a) Blogspot runs on Tomcat, which isn't very endearing and b) the problem is that the Blogspot service is out of memory on that box, which isn't very encouraging.

Neat blog. Will not let me post comments though ...

"The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request."
then a whole page of sttuff basically boiling down to this, I think
"java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create new native thread"

Using IE 6

I kind of pieced that together myself, sidereal, but even their "email" functionality returns the same error.

after just having moved into their new home, the Jones discovered a large family of very fat termites were already been living there.

Given that my user id is number 8558423, I'm not terribly surprised.

It's free and like they say, if it looks too good be to true, it most likely is. ;-(

Thanks votermom. The comments seem to be fixed now...said the big ol' blogwhore

Edward? You don't think Genghis is cute (in that young Charley Chan kind of way)?? OMG!

or even Ghengis????

Edward, I've got to agree with you about the Guggenheim. They keep opening museums when they have no cash--and STILL they charge more than any other museum in NYC (or practically anywhere else, for that matter). I'm a regular musuem-goer, but almost never to the Guggenheim...

Interesting piece, Edward (and congrats on the new blog). FWIW, I think Thomas Krens is onto something here - although the museum world being what it is, the fundamentals (i.e., roping in ego-driven moguls and tourism-happy municipalities to finance and maintain a chain of Guggenheims worldwide) will probably not go deeply examined - except by the occasional intrepid blogger. Unless, of course, the whole mess collapses: but that's another story...
I think your "Alexandrian" simile is apt: except that Krens seems to making sure, from the get-go that he finds the right "Ptolemy" here, or the right "Seleucus" there to keep the franchise going on into the future, even if he isn't around to see it.

PS: did this appear on the other blog?

Turning museums into fast-food places?

How postmodern.

McGuggenheims, over a billion severed.

Jackmormon - just nitpicking, but at $20, the new MoMA has them beat by five bucks a head. In fact, the Met's recommended contribution is the same as the Guggenheim's admission. Of course, if you have no shame, you can stroll into the Met for free :-)

and I do! (have no shame and stroll in for free)

Congrats on the new blog; will read it often.

Some of us are green with envy over those who stroll through the Met and the Guggenheim, shamelessly or not.

That's not Genghis. That's Kublai.

It's Kublai?

The site I stole it from said it was Genghis

so was Genghis any cuter?
