Keeping Up (with Darren Paltrowitz)

by Jason Warburg

Contributing Writer Darren Paltrowitz, whose previous syndicated column Moving In Stereo covered the latest and greatest in live and recorded music happenings, returned in late 2008 with a new vehicle for exploring the wide vistas of modern multimedia.  Keeping Up responded to the reality of information overload with a concise look at the best of all that's new in the worlds of music, books, television and the Internet. As Darren put it,

"Newspapers, magazines, TV, radio, YouTube, blogs, RSS feeds, viral marketing campaigns...it's nearly impossible to stay current nowadays. As soon as you think you're caught up on your reading and streaming, your phone is bound to start ringing. And your inbox fills up again. Without a doubt, we are living in an age where information is the currency.

This column isn't meant to tell you everything that's going on everywhere. Instead, it intends to clue you in about some media (e.g. music, film, books, websites) that its author has recently discovered. These discoveries may not be cutting-edge, but they will be low-cost -- or possibly, free -- should you want to try them out."

Keeping Up ran for 50 editions between 2008 and 2011. Read on:
