Founder of 'Arts & Letters Daily' Dies

Unattributed, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Dec 28, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Denis Dutton, the founder and editor of Arts & Letters Daily, has died. See also this notice in the L.A. Times. I once met Dutton on my first and only trip to New York, in 2000. I had been invited by Jeffrey Kittay, then the publisher of University Business to discuss the future of online learning and learning technology with him. He had just published my paper Nine Rules for Good Technology. Founded in 1998, A&L Daily was acquired by University Business in November 1999. When University Business folded in 2002, the website was taken over by the Chronicle of Higher Education. I was a regular reader of A&L Daily, and had designed NewsTrolls in a similar format. And for my new email newsletter, which I began sending in 2001, I borrowed from Dutton the 'Daily' of OLDaily. A tip of the OLDaily cap, then, a salute and a "hail! well met!" to Denis Dutton, a pioneer in our field.
